A triad of loves – fibre art, sculpture and photography – led me to oil painting and my unique way of working, which is as much about the process as the finished image. Consequently, I invest much time in preparing my tactile relief surfaces prior to painting.
I am drawn to the overlooked, the unconsidered, the solitary; these are manifest as images of one tree, or one plant, one fungi, or one fish. Often my art explores the fleeting moment resulting in abstract landscape and water scenes.
There is a restlessness, which drives me to experiment with materials and seek new forms of visual expression. The result is a series of work which explores a theme, a motif, a process and then I move onto the next art adventure.
