My artwork is born from a fascination with painterly abstraction and the power it has to engage us visually
and emotionally.

In a fast paced society saturated with minute by minute documentation, abstract art gives us an opportunity
to reflect and to delve below the surface.

I am inspired by literature, poetry and music, but just as easily by rain pelting the studio or a landscape remembered. Any of these can be the impetus for the colours and tools
I choose, the marks I make and the shapes that emerge,
as they obliquely inform the content.
