Artist's Statement

Something within me is always waiting to emerge. During my unconscious time I listen for what is seeking expression, then joyfully engage with whatever surfaces.

In my work, spontaneous movement is as much a medium as the paint itself, sweeping, relaxed motion allows me to instinctively lay down form and colour in a fluid, high energy manner which keeps the work very physical in nature.

As a self-taught artist, I have approached my art with abandoned intuition and as my painting continues to evolve, it is still in pursuit of the same goal, to capture that feeling of mystery and awe that compels me to paint.
