I think of my paintings as stories, following a trail with comma’s, pauses and surprise endings.

My oil painting process includes layers of translucent glazes built up with heavy textured paint and touches of brilliant colour. My paintings unfold in lines and shapes and areas of light and dark as forms emerge and withdraw into the shallow background. My themes based on my poetry and watercolours, take second place to the surface of the canvas, which arrests the viewer’s focus in a play of pattern and texture.
