"I believe that visual language has a potent power, like music or literature. And it has the power to lift, communicate and transform.

Using pattern and mark to create rhythm, I use a range of materials; paint, pencil, fabric, collage, metallics, and build up my paintings in a very organic way. I overlay layers of paint, mark and collage to build up the pictorial space. This creates glimpses, hidden spaces, things half_ shown, suggested. I use delicate layers of texture, drawing and colour to create an ambiguous space. The image is then worked and re_worked until the image is “found”. Only when a balance and integration is achieved I feel that the painting is finished.

I like to think of them as “visual poems”. This sensual world is one to be absorbed, felt, and enjoyed. "
