Inspiration and memory

Nature as inspiration is not a new concept to artists, but somehow it always feels new, fresh, with something urging you to create. To explore the tensions between light and shadow, lost and found edges, texture, glaze, memory and the emerging expression of it.

We speak of memory being ‘green’ and my memories of gardens and the songs I learned from my mother as a child are forever intertwined. So each of these paintings link to a word of inspiration and a song from my childhood. Even now as I walk through the many gardens I have been privileged to share, melodies spring to mind as each vista or detail emerges. “I see trees of green, red roses too … and I think to myself what a wonderful world.”
