I am a mainly abstract artist, working on a large scale. I am trying to create fully autonomous paintings that evoke an emotional response in the viewer. I often start with a word, feeling or passage of text and try to visualize those emotions in colour, form and scale. Although some areas of the canvas may resemble water, clouds or sky, I try very hard to remove all reference to reality and hope that a viewer can respond to the paintings as unique objects in their own right.
At the moment I am particularly influenced by Francis Bacon, Diebenkorn, de Kooning, Kline and Monet’s Waterlillies.
