    Artist Statement

    Short statement about my practice

    Change through time and the inevitable accumulation of experience are themes that have underpinned my practice from early on. The way that buildings and much used objects age, weathering and transforming with the passage of time, is a constant source of inspiration. I work at evoking ‘a patina of experience' in my pictures. This directly relates to the methods used to make my work, where I combine conventional painting techniques with more innovative processes.
