As an Artist and an Art Therapist I believe in the truth of the imagination.
These images evoke Archetypal inner landscapes, reflecting my exploration
of inner space, its dimensions and tensions. As inner and intimate landscapes,
they reflect a sense of the immensity of the inner world which is so often
ignored in our culture. In the words of the poet Rilke, "the world is
large but in us it is deep as the sea."
My work as an artist arises from my training in art therapy where the creative
process is the focus of exploration and the product is a reflection of the
unconscious process modified by conscious seeing. These images
reflect my adventure into the unknown landscapes of the psyche and the unexpected
forms of the imagination.
The original landscapes are created in mixed media - a combination of collage
and painting that blends and blurs the boundaries of the different mediums.
In the final prints, the images become a seamless whole, rendered in archivally
stable inks on fine quality etching paper.
