Statement

My work is about shadows, light and fleeting moments.

I try to reach the space I can’t quite see and to do  so in the best possible way. I take an empty space in front of me and weave, shape and conjure marks to change the  space into something new.  The tools I  have are my head, heart and hands … one or other of these leads the way.  The marks change expression through the energy I give to the line from a fineness that comes from holding a breath, a pressure that digs into the paper and a speed that skims the surface leaving the mark to  chance.

When the process of observing the world  around me, particularly the abstract, combines with my inner landscape it creates an energy and present moment that reaches out leaving its footprint for all to see.
