'I enjoy the freedom of painting beyond what our eyes can tell us . The unknown can introduce us to so much more.’
Graduating with a Fine Art (Hons) degree in 1999, Sunnie launched into the realm of the abstract world, specialising in oil, oil/mixed media and encaustic wax.
Her paintings are inspired by the emotional response to our simplest natural surroundings, and their ability to bring us to an inner stillness.
‘Have you ever wondered at a beautiful sunset across the constant ocean?
………..and then wondered beyond that?
After a while, your awareness brings you back to the sunset.
Where did you go in that moment?
This is the space which exceeds your recognition of the sunset; a space of
stillness, vibration, and energy.
This is the essence of my paintings.’
Sunnie exhibits and sells work nationally and internationally, to include Grand Designs in London, New York Chelsea Art Show and Miami Art Fair; and paints to commission.
‘I realise that the captivating quality which can only be found in an original piece of artwork is the spirit of the artist. Every brushstroke, colour, texture and design exudes the patience, frustrations, and diligence of its creator.’
