About

Drawing and collaging lie at the heart of my art practice. I love to make marks. Some marks are more figurative than others but my work is becoming more abstract. I enjoy the freedom of putting paint down on a surface without being constrained by representation. I work in mixed media, mainly acrylic paint plus other drawing materials. By sketching frequently out in the field, hints of a real place might creep into a painting but the aim is always to create with freedom, to retain the energy of the brush marks and to enjoy the results of a more playful approach.
