I choose materials I cannot control. I work in layers from light to dark focusing on shadows and markings on skin. Through focusing on the shadows, more detail unfolds. Seeing through skin, through the veils and masks. I feel deeply connected to nature and transformed when I am in it. I try to bring nature and natural elements in to my work.
Mostly I have worked unconsciously just to survive and to shift dark moments. It is afterwards that the work speaks to me. I have to focus on what is there and then allow the rest to happen. Drawing is about seeing and allowing. I love the shadows and the lines. I love translucence, fragility and the unknown. It is so exciting to begin to paint.
