Personal Statement

Until recently I have been focused on painting still life - how an everyday object can be lifted out of its mundanity when captured on canvas. I am strongly focused on capturing light and shadow and like to work on several pieces at once in order to remain engaged and loose.

Latterly I have been moving into more abstracted work. I intuitively make decisions on colour and composition and tend to work mainly in acrylics as their fast drying nature allows me to capture the freedom in spontaneous mark making.
