"I use drawing and painting to facilitate an instinctive investigation into making sense of what it is to be in this world.

To be here on the Earth right now.

Mapping my experience of the everyday primarily through drawing, I use both exterior stimulus and interior dialogues as influences.

The drawings begin to open up into painting when there is something within them which at the same time as mystifying me simultaneously holds a tangible energy which relates to lived experience.

Using this brink of potential as a starting point, the act of painting then works to unpack, deepen and enrich this quality found in the original drawings."
