Artists Statement

I am primarily a figurative artist. I draw, rather than paint and derive inspiration from music, poetry or prose and incorporate reinterpreted pieces of writing that touch my imagination. Often I will incorporate this with natural scenes- in a seascape or landscape. I use water based paints and pencils and work on mounting card which can take plenty of punishment. If a piece is not working it can be washed off and the ghost becomes the basis for another work.
