My paintings are a combination of observation, imagination and feeling. They are usually of relatively simple things: figures, situations, objects, but this combination is liable to change at any stage of the process. I work with intuition and humour, enjoying the 'play' aspect of working with paint, prepared for anything to happen within the confines of the canvas. They are emphatically not illustrational and I attempt to get beyond the illusion of reality by expressing not just what I see but what I feel. At the same time, I want the paintings to be intriguing, able to sustain repeat readings yet have an instant accessibility.
