Walking and being in nature is an essential part of my practice. Simple, abstract forms are derived from noticing small details and moments while out in the landscape. Snippets from books, magazines, films, memories, images online and other found objects also filter in.
Pausing to appreciate the beauty of simple things every day brings joy.
Offering the viewer a space to contemplate, both jarring and harmonious combinations of painted shapes are altered, covered, carefully revealed and reworked until a final resolution is reached.
I want to create thought provoking works full of tension and mystery, with perfect balance of form and colour.
