Combining acrylic paint, gesso and coloured pastels, I approach each painting with no pre-determined ideas or concepts.


Comparing my painting technique to looking for images in the clouds, I begin with a blank canvas. As I layer on the initial coat of paint to create texture and colour, I start to see shapes and figures emerge from the paint. This is the foundation from which my paintings develop. With the freedom of open-minded approach brings, my paintings take on a life of its own. From the images I initially see, my paintings take on stories, issues, and experiences to which others can relate.

With free thinking process, what is currently around me, influences what I imagine in a painting and finish it sketching it out on the canvas.

I encourage you to read the story developed with the work. When you look into my work, you will see the story falling into place; or you may be able to create your own story!
