Liquid Impressions

I create multi-layered abstract artwork, which re-imagines the hidden beauty of microscopic wonders and unseen details.By manipulating floating pigments on water, I create distinctive fluid shapes and textures. I observe the interaction between these suspended liquid forms, altering their shapes, motion and unpredictability, until I capture their ethereal properties on paper or board; a process I call ‘Liquid Impressions’. Each piece conveys my own distinctive style, balancing opacity, colour and transparency, bold forms and intricate detail. My work invites the viewer to contemplate its evocative and abstract landscapes, echoing the poetry of the microscopic world.

Although abstract, I want my work to “speak” to everyone. In a world of duplication and reproduction, I only make unique and original pieces – much like the nature that inspired me.
