Artist's Statement:

"My current work is an amalgamation of drama, imagination, and memory.    The sea is my initial starting point and touch stone.  The interaction with materials is the way I engage myself with the unconscious/subconscious and actual sea and the concepts of sea, I can use in whichever direction I choose.  The physical act of pouring and pushing paint around is an intrinsic part of my practice, whereby I lose myself in the materiality of the painting process.  Strong colour, an impression of movement and energy characterises my practice.

An important value within my life has been 'the dramatic' and is a central thread in everything I become involved with. Subsequently, these qualities that I value, have been my guideline for the constituents of my art making within the last few years. My paintings involve the application of a wide range of mixed media and materials, which continues to  develop my practice further, whilst pushing the boundaries with new methods and ideas".
