Artists Statement

Colour and surface texture are very important elements in my paintings. The forms used are forms remembered, experienced or dreamt about, usually as with a recent trip to Tunisia it takes about 6 months to digest the experiences. The stark visual contrasts of moving between strong blinding sunlight and black/dark bazaars full of rich reds, golds and turquoise eventually inhabit my paintings. This is also like being put down to sleep as a child in a darkened room with strong sunlight streaming through shutters. This is not a representation but an evocation.
