Experiment, mess, PLAY!

My recent abstract commission has left me hungry to experiment more, mess more, play more … so I’ve been playing with all kinds of toys in my studio these past few weeks.

My favourite so far? The long-handled brushes that keep me 2m away from the canvas, the pink silicon bottle brush that I can scratch into paint and flick paint with, the hair sponge, and the rubber brush.

I’m really enjoying the way that these tools have me more “in my body” and moving my full body to create the art.

I’m also enjoying playing on large sheets of paper. Paper absorbs the paint so differently to canvas… I’m really liking it!
