Whilst the subject matter is important to me..it is the process of the painting that excites..the journey and relationship that begins with the first brush strokes..the mark making and experimentation with different mediums and my response to the surface as well as the subject.

Some of my works evolve from personal history while others formulate from poetry, music and stories..often the paintings have meta meanings that engage the viewer to form their own interpretation.
