The process of transforming paint and other materials into images continues to compel and challenge me. Over the years, that process has led me from realistic drawing & painting to through my degree course the pursuit of experimental abstract processes, eventually going back to realism. Painting fills me with a sense of well-being, and has proven to be a satisfying way for me to translate my visual ideas into a physical reality.
I am intrigued by forms and the values held within a flower. They show everything from seeds, stem, bud, and blossom, returning to the earth to begin a new cycle of birth-life-death. We all have the choice of simply seeing a flower or something more. I love to take a flower and enhance its drama, which can allow you to view it in a completely different way.
