About

inspired by landscape....committed to mark making

I relish the challenge of representing the feeling of a time or place through abstract painting. I begin in the landscape by gathering ideas about line, colour, shape and the fizz of a place. Once back at base I try to distill the collection of marks, words and thoughts into a painting with energy and movement. I love to work intuitively and fast whether I'm working with dry media or paint. I like to push the paint around with my hands to impart an energy to the piece while always trying to retain a loose, playful approach.
