ARTIST STATEMENT

I'm interested in people, how they live, the marks they make on their environment and the items they surround themselves with. My paintings are not designed to be a faithful representation of an object or place but rather to capture the essence of it. They are rich with colour and pattern, shimmering with mood and metal leaf. I want you to look at them and be transported. Perhaps the area or object depicted is part of your story. A town you have visited; a chair which reminds you of the one your Aunt used to own. Perhaps they take you to another place entirely? But however you come to them, I hope you find yourself asking 'Who lives there? What, I wonder, is their story?'
