‘Our meddling intellect misshapes the beauteous forms of things, we murder to dissect.’
- William Wordsworth

A practice, for me, is about letting go; there is no room for fear and no time to procrastinate. I want to remove the intellect and find a playful way to let the paint dance on the canvas without boundaries. The crux of my work is looking at life in a more positive way. It is good to recognise the dark, but it is more important to see the light. In a world full of uncertainty, we should remember how free we were when we were children
