"Primarily I am a painter inspired by the natural and man-made world around me as well as the written word.
My art practice is often thematic and starts with an idea notebook, containing thumbnail sketches and annotations. At the centre the work is about my personal response to the subject matter although colour, shape and paint combine to make my images. I am always looking, recording, editing, and making changes. Sometimes I can work extremely fast while other times I can work a canvas to the point of nothingness and will have to start again, or the paint itself can take on a life of its own and direct the work, which is always welcome".
