"My paintings are a place where reality, imagination and memory all have equal tenancy. Works come from memories of an actual situation or place that is transformed over time by the mind and hand.
I am interested in the tension between suggestion and representation in the presentation of my work.
The painting process has to be fresh and interesting for my own sanity. I use oils and let paint drip, build up layers, scrape back, flick it around and use my tools to create marks that remain in the finished painting. I paint on a variety of surfaces taking advantage of the specific marks I can make with combinations of paint, tool and surface texture."
