As a highly awarded designer, Aplin now uses these design skills to create abstract art with pizazz. Her style is eclectic ranging from naïve Still Life to bold abstracts. Oils are her preferred medium associated with other materials. Techniques vary for added interest. Aplin approaches her work with the ‘point of difference’ attitude. Her work is unique, exactly as she intends it to be. Imperfection and depth lie at the core of all of her work.

I paint as a passion, as an energy release. My work is in the abstract expressionist style. Experimentation of medium and technique drives my practice, but I’m also interested in the aesthetics of the finished work. My art reflects my passion, embodying design throughout, but my practice also allows me to challenge traditional design theories. I explore this tension, the dichotomy between structure and energy, to produce something quite unique. Colour blends are essential and each piece produced by me is intuitive embracing both broad gestural strokes and contemplative detail.
