“I work with all sorts of different mediums. I am interested in space both literally and pictorially and the arrangement of forms therein. I like the tension between, what can be read as figuration but is abstract and figuration that depends on Abstract values.

The most recent paintings are on Perspex painted on both sides which gives actual depth and an illusion of perpective. They present an entirely different aspect depending on how they are lit. Front lit they appear peaceful and meditational but with light coming through the mood is completely altered.

I am also working in collaboration with a laser performer, Jim Webb, designing Installations with Laser Light.

My work has evolved out of years of painting landscapes and figures. My aim is to make paintings and or Installations that resonate through their use of colour and their formal qualities, opening that space in the brain which leads to a heightened awareness of the visual world.”
