My paintings always express my interest in the emotional dynamics of colour and composition. I explore colours, shapes, textures, drawing, and enjoy spontaneity and the sudden emergence of the unexpected. A recent trip to China has led to a further interest in composition which I am exploring through a series of ink paintings.

I am also interested in creating space and movement through the use of colour. Sometimes I start from washes of colour and brushstrokes. There is often a underlying reference to landscapes, cityscapes, and the female form. But just as often I will start from a memory, word, phrase, or sequence of colours.

"Like the picture surface, colour has an inherent life of its own. A picture comes into existence on the basis of the interplay of this dual life. In the act of predominance and assimilation, colours love or hate each other, thereby helping to make the creative intention of the artist possible."
(Hans Hofmann)
