    • Artist Statement
      • My work is based entirely on gesture and mark making; its inherent integrity of expression as the communicating force for the experience stored in both the subconscious and conscious memory of the body and the mind. The movement of paint across the surface of the plate or the canvas is key to the image-making which winds along a balancing line between the figurative and the abstract.

        The underlying emphasis in most of my work is to question and explore what it is to be in the world; what it is to be present; how we as individuals, and as a species, inhabit the space we call the 'self'.
