Someone asked me recently if I thought my painting style had changed since having a baby. I can certainly see a gradual development.
Since having Evie, I have a new found confidence, perhaps once you have given birth you know you can do anything… or maybe I just have less time for procrastination! Either way, I am enjoying my time in the studio and am pleased with the work I am making.
I think I am embracing slightly more obviously gestural marks, as well as the natural qualities of the paint. I like the looseness it is creating but I hope I am still creating softness and stillness in my work.
