I exhibit works in a variety of media including acrylics, watercolour, mixed media, drawing and assemblage sculpture.
They are responses to sights, colours, textures, and materials. Even fanciful imaginings, such as soaring over the landscape in my mind’s eye or remembering how something made me feel or how it might have triggered a deeply held memory.
As a sculptor, some of my materials are unconventional and might be found more readily on a building site than in an artist’s studio. I also love to use found or discarded objects for their inherently distressed qualities.
As a painter I love to work in broad areas of colour and then over-work the surface with line etc. The joy of painting is derived from the very qualities of the paint itself.
My aim is to create images, not pictures.
