“My paintings are made in response to intimate spaces, watery places. The pictures are constructed through a layering system, building up films of paint which come together to create an image of contemplation. I am interested in reflections and the translucency of materials, delicate details and variations in the overlapping of colour; the point at which two different fields meet and touch. Sometimes the painting becomes very physical in appearance, where some layers merge and mix together and others rest on top. The aim, through this process, is to evoke the feeling of what lies beneath. By pursuing a formative harmony, I am seeking to give a new often purely abstract form for the environment around me.”
