My paintings are visual explorations encompassing colour, composition and collaged materials. I often produce three to five abstract works simultaneously in a series. Working thematically, concepts are woven through the body of my work influenced by my interest in the mundane: vase shapes, hand rails, roof lines, steps, railings, clutter of sheds. I am drawn to the inter-relationship of lines, shapes, patterns, positive and negative space.
Making a painting is a delicate balance of selection and discernment, a disciplined, informed call and respond approach. Questions arise during my process-led practice of mark-making, layering, editing and stripping back necessitating risk and chance. Lengthy conversations arise between the emerging surface of the painting and my intuition and experience. In terms of visual language my artistic pathway lies somewhere within the parameters of value contrast, design, perspective and composition.

‘Abstract art is uniquely modern. It is a fundamentally romantic response to modern life – rebellious, individualistic, unconventional, sensitive, irritable.’ Robert Motherwell.
