Where Did The Landscape Moods Series Start and What Are Your Inspirations?

It is since 2002, the focus of my mixed media paintings is what has come to be known as the ‘Moods Collection’, developed from two paintings: ‘Landscape Moods 1: Torn’ and ‘Landscape Moods 2: Joy. This series stemmed from a project during my Art and Design Diploma in 2003. The narrative of this body of work is influenced by my visual memory of landscapes and natural forms. Additionally, the series of artworks are driven by my emotions, hence the use of the word ‘Moods’. I have explored bright and subdued colours, abstraction and simple brush strokes to connote form to the viewer. These inspirations and designs are utilised in painting and metal clay media and add a distinct style and identity to my work.

Texture, depth and colour is achieved by using a range of media including: acrylic paint (matt, gloss and impasto effects), oil painting, watercolour paints, Derwent Aquatone Pencils, Graphite pencils, gilding flakes/ leaf, sand, glass beads, pigment ink, texturing, stamping, stenciling, Conté pastels, mica powders, gleams, textiles, newspaper, manuscript, vintage books and sponge painting techniques.

The most opulent medium I use is Gem Art (Gemart) which is genuine gemstone powders and granules which I integrate into all my work. The gemstones I have in stock are: Ruby, Garnet, Emerald, Amethyst, Apatite, Tourmaline, Carnelian, Chrome Diopside, Citrine, Iolite, Kyanite, Rhodochrosite, Jasper, Labradorite, Lapis Lazuli, Sodalite, Chalcedony, Rutile Quartz, Malachite, Moonstone, Pyrite and Tigers Eye.”
