Artist Statement

My perception of the physical world and the emotional response that is generated is the sole basis of what compels me to explore the relationship between two factors. I see and I react, a simple truth that is relayed back as an interpretation emerging from my mind and that is expressed by using my hands to draw, paint or carve into a surface. Observation of the delicate interplay between structure, form, texture, colour plus light and shadow offer the challenge of interpretation using my intuitive and developed artistic skills.
