I am a trained painter-printmaker and still work in both mediums.
My work is about the way we respond and then remember moments and events in time. I’m interested in the gap between emotional response and narratives we make up.
Sometimes I paint out, other times I collect, photograph, draw, or just look, and rely on my memory, for inspiration.
Most of the time I control composition to suggest movement and encourage a story and use colour and contrasts in layered textures and lines for mood.
In painting I struggle to define what something is and leave out detail without consequence. My titles document when and where I am at the moments of creating.
