My paintings are about texture, gesture and memory and often evoke a sense of place, of mystery, of elements of the natural world. Responding intuitively to random marks, I am driven by an exploration of the materials as much as by my emotional response to the evolving painting. It is all about the process and the physical act of creating: becoming the brush, responding to the surface, the visceral feeling of engaging it. It becomes a dance, finding just the right balance between intention and intuition to bring the composition to a satisfying conclusion.
