I like my paintings to exude a raw human energy. I want the process and the struggle to be evident in the marks. 

I begin each painting with specific outcomes in mind yet I allow myself to go off on tangents, embracing each accident and creating something new within it. This ensures the process is lively and exciting. 

I create images that interest me with historical references from Romantic eras and Renaissance painting, combined with expressive marks inspired by abstract expressionism and the outsider artists, whilst showing the sensuality of the materials. I’m trying to create paintings that seem both familiar but are fresh and contemporary. I want to raise more questions rather than give answers.
