As an artist I work in a number of areas. I create abstract paintings in acrylics and other supporting mediums, I print in a variety of ways, enjoying screen printing at the moment. I also bind books, some with empty pages, some with found treasure pages and some as concept or artist books. I like trees and colour and I take my inspiration from words, feelings and emotions. The reaction that the outside stimulus produces creates a reaction in me that is often cross wired. I will feel a colour, taste a shape, see a sound, these reactions represents a concept or idea and can then be drawn and worked on. It takes me a long time to create a painting as the form needs to be worked out then the process of layers starting with texture then shape then layers of colour to attempt to create what already exists in my head.
