The act and process of drawing and mark making are key for me. This physical process is an integral part of my work and I aim to approach each canvas as I would a sketchbook; hopefully creating something intuitive, fluid and spontaneous.
My current body of work involves revisiting and reworking old, previous forgotten, unfinished or discarded paintings. In this way, as a creator, consumer and critic, these works form part of my own mindfulness, my personal journey and that legacy.
