I am a trained fine artist and teacher of art who now is concentrating on doing my own work.
Colour is very important for expressing the energy and mood of my subject matter. I am very preoccupied with mark making and finding a visual vocabulary to communicate sensual information. Observing and recording the tonal contrasts of how light dramatises a subject is something that can make a composition. Choosing what to exaggerate, emphasise and omit is all part of the choices that make my work meaningful.
I love to look hard at people, things, light, textures, to be seduced by the complex interactions; to pull something out from that essential human reflective experience is such a daring act. To hunt down a visual idea is risky, fun and can be so satisfying if you manage to capture something true and universal.
