Artist Statement

There are elements of still life and figuration in the work. Hints of things that people recognise, but this is not representational painting.   My surface varies greatly, from Linen to wood to Paper and Polyester film. Working on those with Oils, ink and raw pigment I explore surface, gesture and texture whilst bringing to the forfront a strong, challenging, material image that leaves the viewer with a huge amount of ambiguity.
