Abstract Paintings

For many years, I stayed away from paints. I denied myself a lot of pleasure through harbouring the belief that I couldn’t paint because I didn’t have any qualifications. Who did I think I was picking up a paint brush?

For many years, I stayed away from paints. I denied myself a lot of pleasure through harbouring the belief that I couldn’t paint because I didn’t have any qualifications. Who did I think I was picking up a paint brush?

This attitude changed when I couldn’t trust myself with words and I needed and wanted to create. Colour became my friend. Bold bright acrylics became the safe way to express all the pain and emotions that needed to come out.

I reconnected to my younger self through painting and now I just couldn’t live without pulling out my colours and smearing them across the blank page or canvas. My life would be empty and stale without them.

Here are a small selection of recent original acrylic paintings on high quality cartridge papers.  More can be found in the new Esty store coming soon.
