About the listing

Artist & writer, living and painting in Camperdown where she has her studio, Skye Studio.

I have always been fascinated by the actual surface of my artwork in all my painting practice across many mediums. I think the surface of the work is where whatever it is that is art - happens – and where inspiration takes place. The art work’s surface provides the window that opens up to us something about ourselves; and it is also the mirror, letting us see something about ourselves in the painting.

In many instances I like to work in the encaustic medium with oil paint, as I find the layers of wax introduce the quality of an acetate to the work’s surface that lets us see through the layers of the painting to something beyond.

I think Robert Bresson summed up the practice of painting best for me when he said: “Make visible what, without you, would never have been seen.”
