My work evolves through direct observation which I develop and translate into an abstract interpretation. Inspiration often comes from my immediate surroundings (I'm never without a sketchbook). But sometimes it is an exploration of, for example, mark-making that develops from the process itself that may provide a satisfying end result.

With collage I use the paper as if it were paint, layering, subtracting and manipulating it to create what is hopefully an interesting interpretation.

I particularly enjoy combining different media and am always exploring new techniques.
