Artistic approach

 

Responding to my environment and immersion in the material process of making works, leads to an intense focus concentrating on using one, or a combination of processes throughout a series, and with one line of inquiry leading to another. I have a conscious or subconscious compulsion to continually explore. My painting and printmaking practices allow reaction to the developing image using intuitive and multi-layered processes and adjustments as the image develops. My work has been described as being rooted in abstract expressionism and colour-field painting. My painting and printmaking reflect my interest in the interactions of bold colours, lines, hard edged geometric shapes, and pattern, inviting viewers to pause, reflect, and have their own visual and emotional response.
