I coined the phrase ‘Memory Impressionism’ because my artwork is often created by something seen having visited or walked somewhere – or even something I saw on a wildlife program. I then make a painting that captures my impression of that place along with the colours and the way I felt about it from memory.
My paintings often have slightly mystical elements within them. I try to instill energy and answers in them that I like to think will help bring good fortune to their buyers. I may have the body of a middle aged woman but I have the mind and imagination of an 8 year old and am delighted that I can indulge this inclination in my painting. I am not alone in my desire to find magic in the spaces, plants, trees and creatures of nature I think. I want the world to be beautiful and people to be happier. Art makes that happen – in all its forms.
