My working practice is driven by a desire to create in a fresh and innocent way, capturing that zest and excitement of experiencing something new for the first time.
The physicality of a painting as an object fascinates me. The art is not just in the image. The work needs to have it’s own unique identity and be compelling enough to exist by itself.
Imparting inanimate objects (boats, chairs, houses or gestural marks) with personality allows me to explore the viscosity of paint along with colour and surface in a free and unhindered way.
These aspects are a continual source of intrigue, enabling the work to remain raw, evolving and captivating for me (and hopefully for others!).
