For me making art is joy, an opening into timeless essence, a voyage of discovery. Inspired by mindfulness meditation, Buddhist psychology and life experience, I use mixed media painting, performative drawing, photography, video and hand-made book-making to explore ever-changing sensations, energy, feelings, thoughts and memories as they arise and dissolve within innate, unchanging awareness.

Multiple layers of araldite, wood ash, intensely pigmented paint, pastel, cold wax, collage, found materials and gossamer Japanese handmade paper are overlaid as metaphors for the multi-dimensional texture of embodied experience. I use colour, light and shade for their powerful emotional, physical and spiritual resonance.
