I work from observation and then create abstract compositions from the forms. My inspirations are from nature or architecture. There is a great deal of experimentation in my work, often with the process becoming an important aspect. I enjoy exploring what the paint can do as well as adding textures and sometimes objects or stitching to the canvas. Read more –>
I am fascinated by the power of colour and the effect colour has on moods. I have been very interested in the theories of colour used for healing. Large usage of yellow and orange gives emotions of happiness and energy and yellow & green serenity with nature and hope that the viewer gains this feeling from my work. With many paintings I enlarge an image or view so that it becomes out of context and no longer clear to the viewer.
