Artist Statement

My recent focus has been purely abstract and non-declarative.

Throughout layers of line, form and colour I hope that the viewer will find something intriguing, something that occurs between the expected and the unexpected, the known and the unknown.

In my practice, engaging between these informative elements influences my experimentation with different mediums, materials and surfaces. Through trial and error, I find what works together and what doesn’t. I embrace the failures and the successes that come with experimenting, by reworking, discarding and learning from these experiences.

The journey for me is constant, challenging but always an enjoyable experience and I hope that these factors contribute to works that resonate with the viewer.
