Artist Statement

I create spiritual art – describing humans as spirit, energy and light. My paintings reflect my spiritual aspirations, experiences and journey.

Colours are what I enjoy most about painting. The colours and forms create a vibration that the viewer can share.

I have grouped my paintings into themes. I love runes, so I’ve chosen runic symbols as themes.
The Isa series – The Isa rune is winter, cold and ice. It represents rest before activity, potential and possibility. It’s the still form before the irresistible force.
The Jera series – The Jera rune is change, development and reward. The reward comes from not fighting the changes, but accepting it.
The Eihwaz series which symbolises a transformation process is about light – letting your light shine.
Berkana is about new beginnings and growth. And connecting to others, sharing light and nourishment – sowing seeds of light.
I enjoy creating my work on triangular support frames. For me a triangle symbolises the spiritual ascent of humans and our many facets.
I like to describe my paintings with original haiku. It gives another dimension to the visual images.
