'Patterning # 8' 2020. Crayon, oil on paper. 57cm x 22cm.


'Patterning' - Since commencing my studies in Art Psychotherapy my practice has changed. I paint in search of harmony. I want to find a final image that is settled, cohesive, and calm. The process remains important. There is a search from beginning to end, through the application of layers and layers of paint, which find shape and tonal composition over time. As I paint, I search for patience, acceptance and compassion for the artwork and myself. This series of works continues 2020.
