Artist's Statement

I have been passionate about painting and drawing ever since I can remember. It is where I start whatever I want to make, whether it’s a practical solution for organising things or a major design project, such as my garden.

All of my artworks begin with my surroundings or events and responding to them. It’s an emotional response that makes me want to capture that moment or mood. The response makes me look harder and keep looking. Sometimes I make a record then and there – either by sketching, making a detailed drawing, making notes, taking a photograph or all of those things.

When a feeling stays with me it surfaces again later and out comes a piece that is related to those feelings.

Sometimes the medium will trigger the inspiration. I use many different media and methods including printmaking and painting. Oil, Watercolour, Acrylic and various drawing tools are all exciting to me.

My surroundings vary, the mood varies, I vary – nothing stays the same – and so it is with the works I create.
