My work revolves around the themes of 'touch'; 'hidden'; 'covered'; 'waiting'.
Personal moments of life seen at close range; elusive feelings and emotions. Combining modern and traditional working methods is a defining element of my work, referencing both contemporary and historical sources.
Using digital manipulation of my original photographic source material before executing the paintings and drawings allows for initial experimentation with composition, colour, close up detail of the subject.
The highly detailed paintings (mainly large scale) are produced using the traditional method of oil glaze painting. I use this method with layers of transparent colour (without the use of white) and glaze applied onto a white oil primed ground - a slow and meticulous process which gives a luminosity and depth to the colour.
Graphite drawings are also part of my practice.
