STATEMENT: My latest work shows further development of the coast, landscape or buildings using experimental techniques of mixed media and other materials on canvas as well as paper The representation of a scene turns into a fantasy of the mind through colour and texture interweaving with the experiment and the unexpected. Paint straight from the tube, sprays rollers, collage, ink and modelling pastes with mark making media all help to achieve the desired result.
