“Each of my paintings is a result of experimentation. Sometimes I begin with a basic form, sometimes with a gesture in paint. I begin to add other materials such as paper or card as the work evolves. Sometimes I print forms on to the surface too. Each mark with paint or crayon or pencil or each piece of paper added creates a new challenge in terms of its effect on the whole. The painting evolves as a series of aesthetic problem-solving situations until I find a way to achieve a resolution”.
