 ARTIST STATEMENT

"My main motivation is to portray the inherent beauty and harmony that exists in the inter- relationship of colour, composition and form.

I like to work on several pieces simultaneously and my process involves building up layers of materials and textures. My initial layers are thin and fluid, inks and watercolours, as the paintings progress I move into thicker paints, acrylics, varnishes and glazes. I even have a fondness for house paints! I love the way the work builds, it is an art in itself to know when the piece is complete.

Time is a crucial element of my works. I will take an artwork which I think is finished, into my home and live with it for a few weeks. This way the painting gets to tell me if it is complete, if I need to add or subtract any element. Painting and waiting if you will. The challenges of composition and palette are paramount when working in abstraction, as there is nowhere to hide, no figuration to divert attention from the purity of the application of paint. This sheer act of application is the nexus of my creative motivation. It is the love of the media and the colour that propels the brush."
