In a world which can sometimes feel tumultuous, I want to make positive, uplifting paintings to counteract the imbalance. The following series of paintings are concerned with rising upward, moving forwards.  The vertical brush marks are abstract, strong, bright and visible, soaring almost.  Following the painting stages, I use thread to enhance compositional details further, providing contrasting accents of colour, sewing into and around the canvas frame.  I want to present the viewer with something new to consider and am satisfied when the work feels harmonious.
