I began painting from life to create direct depth to my pieces and examine up closethe patterns I could see in the natural forms. I was drawn to how I could producesomething so abstract from the forms whilst doing so.

Some of my favourite artists were Lee Krasner and Kitty McCall, who both work with
colour, natural forms through large and interesting compositions with pattern. Whilst visiting the MOMA museum in Stockholm I got to view the famous Matisse cut outs, which have inspired me to apply abstract forms in my work in bold colours. I have
