I create to explore, discover and understand feelings and emotions;  about myself, the human condition and the changing and challenging world around me. 

My work is abstract but there are figurative elements.  I am process led and work on several pieces at one, usually in a series, and there is a constant dialogue taking place as each work informs the other.  I work freely in mixed media, layering and stripping back in a call and response practice.  The history of a work itself tells a story and I find there is some alchemy involved when the work takes over and evolves.
