Artist Bio: 

My work is motivated by interpretation of my world, imagination and experiences. The idea of chance plays an integral part of the process and I enjoy working intuitively. My medium is oil paint, which I build up and break down, incorporating and excluding. 

In relinquishing some control the narrative reveals itself. 

My current practice is an interpretation of my environment and experiences conditioned by my imagination. It is about finding the magic that lies within both the beautiful and the seemingly unattractive. The works are an investigation into the possibilities of change and transformation. They continue with the notion of looking through the mind’s eye to alter what is banal or confronting and shift that reality to create a positive slant. 

Looking into the distance and experiencing the uncertainty of what lies within and beyond those undulating mountains.  My focus is on the ambiguity created by melding shapes and weaving the layers of colour light and atmosphere.
