"Every painting is an intuitive experiment in layers of colour, shape and texture. I draw inspiration from my surroundings, my memories and the dialogue in my head. My work combines a tension of gestural mark making and consciously executed elements with layer upon layer of colour - thin washes, thick strokes, scraping, glazing. There is a definite chaos as each work evolves until eventually a visual order seems to emerge. My hope is to create an abstracted reality that each viewer can bring their own feelings or memory to. "
