About

Artist's Statement

Observation is the starting point for my paintings, whether it be the interplay between light and shadow in a still life set up, the relationship between an object/figure and its environment or simply the effect of one colour next to another. This usually leads to a process of inclusion and elimination as I explore the painting's possibilities, allowing the narrative or theme of the painting to emerge and for the motif to take on meaning beyond the subject’s formal structure.
