Water has always fascinated me. I am mesmerized by the fluidness and the way light skips across and reflects onto the surface. But how to capture this shine? This inner light?
These thoughts lead me naturally to use gold and silverleaf in my work…. i worked on canvas but moved naturally to paper as i wondered how water felt on the inside. I loved the mysteries that were shown to me of this inner world of water using these new techniques…..but i wanted that depth and inner light that has always been with me…. and so this lead me to paint on the reverse side of glass, and instantly i knew i was recreating what has been inside me all my life….
The glasswork contains the mystery and reverence, the colour, the texture and THE LIGHT pertaining to all life.
This represents endless possibilities to me.
