Medium sized paintings and prints exploring the wonders of nature.
I am a painter by nature, responding instinctively to the world around me. I like randomness and seek (and find) surprises. The dynamics of colour and form are everywhere, providing contrasts and correspondences. The way in which intentional and chance elements collide in the environment, reminds me of the process of painting itself. The texture and sensuality of oils, pigment, charcoal and oil bar are important to me. Often inspired by glimpses of nature, my own photos and found imagery, which I develop first as electronic sketches, painting proceeds in concentrated bursts, with periods of contemplation in-between. Painting is a formative act, like speech, and each painting is only completed when there is nothing left to be said.
