"My work explores the theme of scapes from sea and land through to urban and dreamscapes. Much of my work explores the amalgamation of these scapes, to allow the viewer to bring their own conclusion to the work in a personal way. I enjoy working with the intensity and subtle nature of colour and experimenting with surface qualities. I create work that the viewer can look into, to the history between the layers of the opaque and the transparent, to the layers of washes and the scratched and rubbed areas. My colour fields range in scale from the large to the intimate, all dealing with the pull and push of shapes, space and harmony. I work mainly with oil or acrylic on canvas, exploring the flow of paint over a surface area and the history a painting possesses in the various stages through which it evolves."
