This work was largely drawn from dream imagery and journal work, an ever changing visual diary of who and where I was at the time (1990). By linking two very different processes – the physical act of painting and a more contemplative exploration of a personal interior world – my main interests intersect in these multi-medial paintings and drawings. This artistic practice continued a long-held interest in the study of psychology and counselling. But is was also wrapped up with something even more personal – a spiritual questioning that was also one of my main concerns. I found that an intensely personal form of visual expression, if explored with rigorous honesty can transcend the individual and become of universal interest on many levels. The self, dream, child and home all reverberate through photos, artifacts and remembered dreams while mirror images and other repeated imagery act as visual echoes of myself.
