Using an impasto, painterly technique in oil I create cubist farm landscapes. I live in the country and am surrounded by beautiful barns and rolling hills. My work is a culmination of years of painting in search of a patchwork quilt effect using thick, expressionist marks. Barns and farmland speaks to me as I live in a rural setting and have good friendships with local farmers.
Using classical oils and painting on my grandmothers 1940’s easel, I work instantaneously across my canvas, creating layers of colour that overlap as the image emerges through a grid technique that I’ve developed over years of my practice. The image emerges as both abstract and representational.
