A little about my ideas

Environments interest me, particularly how people imprint on and transform the land in both urban and rural contexts.

Really engaging the viewer is another priority for me and I use large scale, novel perspective, and more recently, colour and light, to capture the attention of the viewer.

Sometimes I start with a specific idea for a painting, although it often morphs into something else as the painting takes on a life of its own.

Mostly I begin by making marks randomly across the picture plane and then stand back to see what has started to emerge, developing the composition from there.

I think it’s very important to be flexible and constantly revising decisions when involved with image making.
