8 Billion Heartbeats is an original painting on canvas. It can hung directly onto the wall, as it has a deep edge, or can be framed according to taste.
I wanted to create a painting that was full of energy, and had a beautiful flow to it.
Using a circular motif to make the dark marks, I feel this creates that movement and flow, that is full of life and energy.
I love the dramatic mood of the painting with it’s dark upper half, but it also holds an incredible softness and gentleness.
I see the dark circles as beats, or pulses. With this association when naming the painting, I was thinking about heartbeats. There are 8 billion people in the world, thus I found the rather beautiful and poetic title "8 Billion Heartbeats".

I use a range of materials; paint, pencil, fabric, collage, metallics, and build up my paintings in a very organic way. I overlay layers of paint, mark and collage to build up the pictorial space. I use bold blocks of colour that are soft, sensual and striking.
My paintings have a directness, using straight lines, and an off kilter symmetry. But within that it holds a sensuous quiet warmth that nourishes and feeds the viewer on an emotional level.
"I want to create beautiful spaces. I see my paintings existing like music or poetry. They are visual experiences to be felt on an emotional level. I believe in the power of ART to lift and transcend. Using an abstract language of mark making that is both personal and universal. I believe that visual language has a potent power, like music or literature. And it has the power to lift, communicate and transform."
