  • Work
  • Biography
I create abstract works in which the interactions of colour and form are fundamentally important.
My subject matter is drawn from everyday experiences. The work I am making reflects my perception of the traces and fragments of memories, moments, and experiences relating to my own daily life and those of others. Our lives are largely made up of fragments of such often apparently insignificant moments and experiences. These include images, sounds, memories, perceptions, emotions and sensations. I am seeking to capture and reflect some of these moments and experiences in my artwork.
