My oil paintings emerge spontaneously through an exploration of colour, energy and form on the canvas itself. The evolution of the painting for me is like a journey of discovery which takes many twists and turns along the way. The use of vibrant, intense colours kick starts the artistic process and often takes on an elemental theme. I paint intuitively, revealing the unfolding scene, facilitating each piece to reach its natural conclusion. This process can take a matter of days, weeks or months or may be ongoing for several years.
