The process of painting to me is like a game of Jenga you pull parts out and try to fit new ones in somewhere else, trying to make the whole picture work, but doing it blindfolded. My paintings contain no pictorial reference, they are instead tributes to painting, indeed the very act of painting, varying strokes from light and fast to slow and heavy. It is these actions along with pouring and dripping paint which make painting so engaging for me.

In the last few years, my style of art practice has adopted a more gestural style of painting. These gestural paintings are about the process of painting such as making drips, pours, or impasto marks. There is not a particular subject or theme going on within the paintings but I paint about paint. The colour palette I often use is very vibrant and intense without much thought of their relationship within the shape of the canvas. I am interested in the work of Gerhard Richter, Albert Irvin, and Gillian Ayres.

There is a constant battle to make the paintings fresh and interesting without making the image feel bloated and over congested. It is a duel of the conscience and sub-conscience, to be aware of what your creating but also let yourself ride along with the paint. One of the questions that you ask 'Is it enough? or Should I add a little more?'
The colour within my paintings roars as it grips the viewer attention. The injection of colour adds space and depth within the surface. Contrasting and complementing one another as they compete for their right with the painting.

As paintings are responses to the subconscious they lend themselves to a sense of mystery as you slowly try to discover it's secrets. Although within painting it is always leading you instead of you leading it. We are always on a journey unearthing yourself as we find certain aspects which sing to you. It is these aspects such as a unique mark or shape that you search for whilst painting.
