I draw inspiration from a range of sources, such as archaeology, artifacts, geology, landscape and plant matter.
My process comprises of an eclectic mix of adding and subtracting: controlling the medium yet allowing the accidental. I work in layers, creating then obscuring , revealing then hiding.
Painting surfaces are constantly multi-layered and renewed. This process-orientated method of constant re- defining allows a subject’s essence to reveal itself in its own time.

"Dancescape" is a mixed media collage that was inspired by the grace, intricacy, and near perfection of the ballet dancer. Unlike, the trained ballerina to follow intricate, choreograhic patterns, the painting upholds no pattern; it boasts no set path. Rather, it's structured inconsistencies reveal a choatic frenzy often present within a more primitive form of dance.

Liquid Light & Acrylic Collage on Board
Colette Standish's artwork presents the tensions that exist between opposites, centering around masculine and feminine, animus and anima. She uses the body as a point of reference, using blank space in the human form to evoke a spiritual presence and present the plane where tensions reside, at times invisible to the human eye. Her interactions with opposing forces cause her images to fragment offering a perceived balance and harmony of tension and the resulting discomfort.
