My intuitive sensibility and gestural aesthetics are heavily influenced by a raw dynamic painting style. When I am involved in the act of painting I often do not look at the image I am creating; instead, I am engaged in the process, the colours, the expressive marks and the humbling physicality of painting. I want to be fully immersed and not influenced by my conscious.


It is important that there is a transference of energy, tension and movement of paint onto the canvas that is deeply personal to my expression and communication as an artist. I experience a subtle interplay between conscious thought and turning off all the noise in my head. This is challenging and pushes boundaries...the hardest part is to "not look" yet "see the feeling" and allow the paint to tell the story.
