Nearly all these works are mixed media: acrylic, oil, crayon and chalk. They are on a textured, plaster of Paris ground and mounted on wood-cradled panels. The plaster is incised with lines and marks: some random, some precise and deliberate.

The process of making my paintings is free and fluid, allowing for sudden ”happy accidents’. At the same time, I maintain a state of alertness – a kind of painterly mindfulness – adding and overpainting, alternately losing and finding forms; seeking an integral harmony and balance. Once I feel this has been achieved, it is over to you to spend time looking attentively and to find these for yourself.

When people tell me my paintings give them a feeling of peace and wellbeing, I feel the job is done.
