Working solely with a palette knife, I pull multiple colours on both sides of the knife, mixing the colours directly on the panel. Working flat, I create from all sides, ensuring that the piece works compositionally from all sides. The stained wood grain of the birch panel to become an integral part of the composition and, like a watercolour, is left untouched – this creates a dynamic play of positive and negative spaces. The resin enhances the colours but also reflects the viewer, incorporating them into the piece; encouraging the viewer to be encompassed by nature and to be more thoughtful of their place within it.”
