My painting process works with intuition, colour, rhythm and movement setting up a space for my memories of the tropical to appear. From this, feelings of nostalgia and longing become present. As this space unfolds I go in search of specific sensations and affects such as the sentimental, celebration, joy and euphoria. This process generates questions that relate back to nature. From this position a transformation occurs that creates fictional spaces, which employs a celebratory method of painting. As such I am searching for repetitive motifs that can consistently reproduce this celebratory method. As a result further sensations of vibrancy and the feminine begin to unravel and produce meaning.
