Abstract Artist

I work mostly in acrylics, sometimes mixed media, combining intuition, spontaneity and a sense of experimentation to create both subtle and complex surfaces of textures and colour.

The inspiration for my work is often mundane and overlooked but to me contains a wealth of visual information. Often these sources are found in peeling paint on driftwood, a lichen covered rock, rusty metal.

Through the process of texturing and paint layering, adding and subtracting, I endeavour to convey an emotion, a fleeting moment, the passage of time.

My paintings invite close examination - to focus and engage with their complexities, thereby creating a visual narrative with the observer.
