My work is a passionate and playful exploration of abstraction, with some focus on landscape.

I enjoy the ambiguity of abstraction, where the subject is an internal experience leaving open the possibility of much more content. My work is multi-dimensional, incorporating a joyful exploration of my expanding vision.

A journey of passion and discovery!

 How artwork is made

I start with an idea that has emerged via observation in nature/media/other visual material.  I then move to execute this idea on canvas using paint, drawing materials and or collage. I adjust, make additions and /or subtractions until I am satisfied with the final product.  Sometimes this process quickly falls into place and I’m satisfied with my artwork.  More often I work and rework images, textures, and compositions over extended periods of time.  I frequently work on more than one work at a time.  This allows me time to reflect on my work, expanding my perspective as I go.
