Texture, pattern and light are the key elements in my paintings.
By changing any of these factors a painting can be constantly evolving with little variation in the actual subject matter. The introduction of a specific texture or pattern can define the mood of the painting. Add light to the equation and a simple composition can have many different facets.
Although I trained in drawing/painting , I also spent a year studying embroidery and weaving. By integrating both disciplines my work can hopefully develop in many directions.
I particularly like to work in watercolour and gouache because of the purity of the medium. It is direct, lively and very free.These qualities takes you on a journey and often the outcome is nowhere near the original starting point.
