“I surround myself with images from my travels and inspiring environments that I have photographed.  I might see the colour of oxidised copper or a picture of a crumbling wall and from there, I paint – encouraged by memories and guided by instinct. Each piece reflects my personal response to the image and is an expression of that. I am interested in creating a variety of surfaces, layering paint and embracing the “accident’.  I enjoy exploring the paints physicality and allowing the work to develop and change throughout the building process.” …….
