"My paintings are an essential part of my life. They are a dialogue with the world, both spiritual and material, past and present.
They document my feelings and thoughts of being part of an ever-changing and transforming earth, exploring the role which individuals and societies play within it.
For me, the process of painting is a conversation, with narrative elements which evolve throughout the process. This is reflected in my work through elements of colour, mark, surface and texture. Much of the time the title gives a starting point, allowing the viewer to embark on a dialogue with the work and inviting personal reflection and interpretation.
