Imagery– newspaper, magazines, photos, listening, walking the streets … draw me in on two levels: Emotional, and Formal. All these bits (clippings, pages) of information are stored.One day they will be the beginnings of a new series of work, or incorporated into paintings that have a missing link.
The goal is to paint emotion alongside form, and content; to combine sentiment and strength. While I want to immerse the viewer in an atmosphere that elicits a response, I am aware of my craft – drawing painting –the qualities of paint, the beauty of pure paint and colour. I see myself as an observer, a chronicler of basic human emotions.
