Artist Statement

Rather than recreating an image on a canvas I aim to express its essence. In order to capture this richness, I work on a number of paintings concurrently. This allows me to transport strong elements and effective techniques from one painting to another. I am most interested in the movement of organic shapes and patterns using colour and texture. Each multi-layered painting captures some fragment of the images power until each piece coalesces to express its deepest essence.
