Shaping My Paint

I never plan the end result of a painting, except for choosing the colours. Once I start, the painting begins to take on a shape on it’s own: although there is an element of design that goes into the painting as it progresses and grows into it’s own form. The design choices I make at this stage are inspired and based on nature.

All things in nature have a structure, or design to them. I call it “Organic Design”. Everything has a heart, spine or central core where it’s energy flows from. This form is what keeps everything in balance and this energy is what drives us and keeps us going. The design of my paintings is based on this concept. As I’m working, my goal is to create a form that represents all life, and the energy it projects.
