In my work I am exploring the reality and beauty in the observed natural form. I am constantly looking at the three dimensionality and relationship of the line, both in and out of the human body to create an abstracted reality. Space, form, fluidity and rawness are vital elements in the making of the work.

I work from a series of nudes, or a photograph or the fusion of the two. Mixed media plays a vital role from the prepared surfaces and textures; layered, stained and work-on surfaces. But it’s the focus and question of ‘who you really are’ that counts. I reveal the rawness and fluidity to express a type of truth. The works can often be described as ‘composed mistakes’ they are I hope, a fusion of what I really see and feel.
