    My painting is about conjuring up layered views. Painting is one of the most complex and expressive visual forms.   The method of application itself demands revision through contemplation – colours being mixed, loaded onto brushes and marks being made. I use colour as a celebration and for accessing something beyond the rational.  It is the means by which space must be expressed. Not necessarily an illusion of space but a living vibrant pictorial space.  I want to use colour to liberate space and create a fundamental beauty. The inspiration for my work may be triggered through events; human or historical, mythical or geographical.  The work isn’t illustrative, events provide a jumping off point.  The paintings are a way to describe the world and our place in it, not as a narrative but through the shadows, footprints and artefacts that mark our journey through life.
