For the last few years, I have had the chance to spend time in the studio to play and to just draw, paint and only think about the moment of making, not the final artwork. It has been the driving force behind the making and experimentation that has gone into these works. The autonomy to play with different materials and the ability to remove my own expectations from the final artwork has allowed me to produce a collection of works that has been freeing and a surprising way to find new marks, make layers and play with composition.
The opportunity to exhibit these works has come about in the last few months and has meant collating them together and editing them with a purpose. This has really cemented by journey and I think will end up taking the making of my art into a new direction.

The house was a beautiful mess
Our stories bring us together
Everything smelt like dried flowers
Time, fragile and fleeting
