ARTIST STATEMENT

I paint abstract landscapes inspired by nature and infused with the sounds of the blues and a twist of rock music.

I explore the energy, light and sounds of natural landscapes. I’m intrigued by the way they continuously fracture and re-shape the landscape.

My style is loose and organic. I interpret the landscape rather than replicate it by layering colours, shapes and lines to show the interplay among the seen and unseen parts of the view.

Currently I’m taking a year to explore and re-energize, an ‘almost sabbatical.’ I’m painting without direction, following my whims and allowing myself to just create. I’m in my studio a few days a week and continue to post new paintings on social media.

I have been painting intermittently for over 35 years and started painting full-time and established my art business, Life-az-iz Studio, a few years ago.
