artist statement

my work explores emotions, intuitions and my experience of different places I have travelled and in my mind visited. I build paintings with layers like stratified history, each canvas a different place discovered and uncovered. my paintings map my journeys with words, language, colour and texture. the whole gamut of my experience is scratched, glued, stitched and painted. I bring these maps from one territory to the next and overlays one upon another to see what happens. this process situates my work in the moment of expression and yet sees each new work evolving from the last.
