The way we interact with our environment influences the way we see things and frame the things we see. We take insubstantial, fragmented images and fill them out to make complete narratives.

It is this tension between the negative space, what is withheld from the frame of the painting and what is suggested that engages the viewer in a conversation with my work. I am showing part of a picture or world which exists beyond the realm of the canvas in the mind of the viewer. This conversation between the viewer and the painting, between description and abstraction is the most vital element of my painting.


These pieces remind me of the phases of a day and the light playing through a forest . Interesting and surprising for me , combinations of colour. Each of these ‘stands’ are 48x24” .

It’s so nice to see the sun again. The combination of grey , wet skies and cool weather had my energy flagging.
