Artist Statement

My oil painting technique consists of, but is not limited to, layering transparent glazes of pigment and medium onto a surface and allowing each glaze to dry before repeating the process. To create collages, I use paper cut-outs, foil, and mixed media such as oil, acrylic, ink, pen and watercolour. I combine wet and dry techniques in my watercolour paintings.

Different subjects inform my work, which include realistic and abstracted forms. Although my portraits and nature paintings reflect my most realistic work, most of my art has been described as atmospheric and often surreal. I believe that this flows from the personal picture-making techniques that I have used and tried to develop.

At present, I try to represent my environment as best as possible in my life and my work. More and more, I see this type of, often naïve, honesty feed my art, help me conceptualise, and remain creative.
