I’m interested in the way things are remembered in visual terms so there is a strong element of storytelling in my work although the images are abstracted. I get to know my subject matter through sketching in charcoal and then try and paint as instinctively as possible over the top to achieve a result that captures energy and movement. I like the working process to be visible in the finished object and I hope the paintings are an antidote to the slickscreensaver-style images that surround us.
