Artist Statement


Working in the genre of contemporary abstract expressionism I employ a variety of techniques including texturing, layering, chiselling and sanding to create my paintings in oil on canvas or linen. I draw my inspiration from investigations and explorations into the natural world, psychology, contemporary poetry, music, and life in general. Using only colour, mark making, and composition without external reference, my goal is to create paintings with a sense of MA, or the space between, allowing the viewer to enter into the work and create their own dialogue.
