My Specialty – The Paint Pouring Technique
After some time our teacher showed me a new technique that I had never seen before. It was paint pouring and I instantly became captivated by the way the paints reacted to each other. That’s when I began to experiment with this style at home and found myself spending hours delving further and introducing all sorts of other materials. It was all very addictive.
The images I convey to canvas relate back to experiences and adventures from throughout my life. Growing up by the ocean, traveling extensively throughout the Mediterranean, Europe, Ireland, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and outback Western Australia plus my time living in the gold fields and Pilbara has provided an endless stream of subject matter. I find the emotion that colour evokes takes me back to the particular place in time, hence the painting at hand develops.
