PAINTING, PRINTS AND DRAWINGS

I create works using colour, instinctive mark making, complimented with an arrangement of abstracted elements to evoke or capture a moment in time.

My practice involves a variety of techniques, printmaking, painting, drawing and digital processes. Although not directly relating to a scene or place much of my work is rooted in the landscape, rural or urban. The attraction to the physical nature of my view inspires dynamic compositions, utilising mark-making and abstracted shapes, evoking and capturing an emotive place. Applying a dynamic and energetic intuitive approach, layering and adjusting, using inks, paints, charcoal and other mediums, I use this working process with an aim to reach a point where a balanced composition emerges.
