I paint because I am fascinated by colour, both visually and conceptually. My work usually involves creating an interior or exterior space. Viewers often feel that they are seeing something vast but on a magnified level, like a universe inside a drop of water. The excitement of luminous colour and the rich variety of texture possible with paint overwhelm me with their beauty.
I want to see my ideas manifest. It is experimentation born of curiosity. My colour combinations move in a come-hither dance of attraction and repulsion, the romantic give and take of a relationship.
