“I am a figurative painter working from direct observation and drawing. The sense of place, geographical focus and personal historical memory, have always been intrinsic to my practice. In my pictorial inquiry there are always more questions than satisfactory answers. Everything is in a state of flux and continuously changing. Looking has always been important; everything looks so beautiful. I am constantly trying to understand how to interpret space in architecture and in the natural environment and transform it into a two-dimensional image.”
“I am interested in fractal images and patterns regardless of whether these fractals were generated by mathematics, humans or scenes in the natural world (coastline, trees or clouds). Echoing my background in graphic design, I use a scaffold of drawing to inquire into the compositional forces of the painting. My landscapes rely on
repetition, finding their forms and colours potent emblems of the fluid and fleeting nature of all human experience.”
