I am beguiled by the face, I am entranced by shape, I respond to a presence. I wish to capture that elusive ambiguity that asks more questions of the viewer than it answers. I am led by a sensitivity to form and an appreciation of the character and quality of the materials I use. My figurative artworks are more than an individuals portrait; they aspire to be a symbol of human feelingness and our capacity to empathise as we behold the being looking back at us. In my imagined lightscapes I play with the deliciousness of paint to create suggested landscapes that glow from within. In both I wish to explore ambiguity; that which is given and that which is withheld, to always create a dialogue between artwork and viewer.
