I am fascinated with how paint as a material can express an idea when its expressive qualities are worked and exploited until I feel a connection with the subject again. The starting point may be sad or bad but the painting’s execution can produce a thing of beauty where the sheer enjoyment and satisfaction of its production is apparent, creating a tension between subject and surface.

‘….only painting as experience and individual practice allows one to give meaning to the chaos of the world and to forge a point of view from which to examine events, especially if they are small, insignificant and ordinary.’
