"My paintings are an expression of dormant memories uncovered & brought to life on canvas through abstraction".
I feel compelled to create & paint as if I have no choice in the matter.
I evoke my surroundings together with glimpses from my distant past.
For me painting is an emotional event rather than an intellectual one.
Viewers may read any meaning they see fit & appropriate into my work.
I hope frequent viewing rewards the beholder with insight & delight.
The rapid drying nature of acrylic paint, my preferred medium, injects dynamism & urgency within the painting process.
I love the anticipation that composing & painting each canvas brings.
I hope that my viewing public share this sense of pace & pleasure too.
My painting heroes are Mark Rothko, Gerhard Richter & Sean Scully.
