The act of seeing something comes before the process of reacting to it. Some people are unable to see colours, and other people see colour differently from the majority, but generally our eyes all work in the same way, the same stimulus produces the same responses in everyone’s visual system. What happens after is another matter. Once our eyes have allowed us to experience a colour, it is everything else about ourselves that determines the meaning and emotions we attach to it.

I am a process painter; using an impelling psychic drive, using the unknown to make the known, attempting to have my consciousness becoming subconscious, this then takes control of my actions of the paint being applied to the canvas creating a raw image.

I then deconstruct the image by ripping and tearing it, to then construct a whole new painting, playing with the fundamentals and the grammar of painting to create abstract paintings that are best described as an experiment with the fundamental process of painting. Manipulating the canvas, to create paintings that are rich in both colour and texture, I am inspired to paint by the very act of painting.
