My Paintings are focused on the material quality of the paint, the material, colour and texture has as much importance as the image. I use lots of Paint and put it on thick! I paint large Landscape and semi-abstract and also complete abstract paintings. and love the unpredictability of abstract painting, I paint freely and aim to capture a sense of this in the Painting.
I explore colour and the very surface of the paint, whether the paint is shiny gloss or a flat matt, metallic oil and acrylic, every type of paint is used and worked onto the surface of the canvas. I use brushes, my fingers and pallet knives, anything that gets the paint thickly onto the canvas to express what I want. I sometimes use the colour in its purist form, pure Black or Blue, the surface makes the painting play with the light in the room.
Each Painting is a memory of something real and through the material of paint I translate it into an imaginary
landscape or abstract painting. The more I paint, the better my knowledge of the material is, I want to continue to find my own language of painting.

I received the ‘David Haste Landscape AWARD for my final show. In 2002 I did a Post Graduate PGCE in Teaching.
I am currently painting and have exhibited in local exhibitions in and around London. More recently I have shown work internationally.
I want to keep on producing work and improving my studio practice through continuing making commissions.
