About my Work

Subject matter in my work is far less important to me than the abstract qualities of the painting itself. I am preoccupied with space, form, colour and mark. The inspiration for the work may come from any visual or emotional experience, and memory and imagination may play their part in the creative process. I do not have a preconceived idea of how the finished painting will look. As soon as I make a mark, or place a colour,  then the painting has its own life and makes its own demands. It is my concern as a painter to respond to these demands.
