My paintings move between figuration and abstraction. They begin with a response to observations, memories, places or events. They emerge through a prolonged process and considerable re-working, accumulating a history of marks.
They evidence the pleasure I take in the process of making work and the unique and challenging space it gives me.
I work in oil on board.
