Artist’s Statement:
Drawing intuitively with colour through water-based media allows me to create vibrant visions of inner and outer landscapes. I manipulate colour, shapes, textures, lines, tone and decorative pattern to unite fragments of memory and narrative into a new image. As Fennah Podchies writes, 'using her distinctive pallet ... each piece is a unique response and process.’

Experiences of real landscapes are significant for my visual vocabulary and the wild places of North Wales, Scotland and Ireland are often referenced in my work. When objects appear in my compositions, they are ones that hold a personal significance for me.

The life affirming quality of my work sings through the use of rich colour. Working with the subtle nuances of water based media, combining layered textures and a concern for mark making gives my work its distinctive originality.
