“I'm naturally concerned with composition, decomposition, colour and form. I like there to be a rhythm and depth in the painting style which draws your eyes across the surface and excites the eyes and the mind. Translating the energy of the subject through the physicality of mark making and gestures. Beautiful almost perfect compositions admiring and understanding the beauty of life.
I celebrate and understand my medium and how it can inspire the outcome. A fusion of mind and material. My experience with textiles links directly to my love of tactile works and surfaces, and the notion of portraying the personality of your subject matter."Website
