My work comes from a close observation of nature and an intensely experienced subject. The relationship of Space between the spaces. Light creates space creating a platform for the viewer to enter and be drawn to the reality of my paintings. “True directional view of reality, use of simple tones and disposition and energy of the forces to produce what I see. The force behind and direction of energies outside which I empathise with.”
Ceramic plates (Fired paintings) in the shape of 18” earthenware & 6″ Raku ware to evoke figurations, often on themes parallel to my paintings.
