'Welcome, O life! I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race' James Joyce quoted in The Courage to Create by Rollo May. I am always looking for this complete new beginning in the unknown place that will reveal itself through my encounter with painting......... Painting is my teacher and always like a gift delivered from the depths, so unexpected and helpful is the process and image for me.
I was born in 1947 and grew up on a sheep farm in South Australia. When I was six we moved to a farm in Western Australia with a river and bush and wild flowers and neighbours to play with. It was a much bigger world and as children we seemed to have a large kingdom to ourselves separate from the adult world. When I discovered painting it was in many ways a rediscovery of this freedom, exploration, play and connection to something other. Children play with no concern for the outcome. The play unfolds. This I found in painting. What unfolds is always a surprise and often an informative one. A way I discover what was previously hidden.
