About my artwork
As Turner Prize winner Keith Tyson says of his similar work, it 'is not that they are paintings of nature, but that they are paintings by nature.'

Since an early age, watching movement and change in the natural world; particularly the organic shapes and patterns that form as a result of naturally occurring physical processes has fascinated me. The process of my abstract painting stirs the same feelings, and totally absorbs me in the practice.

Physically pouring paint goes beyond gesturalism and becomes a transfixing journey across the surface of the canvas. Though the paint acquires independence, I work with it to form compositions that are non-representational but appear recognizable of the natural world.

Along with colour, the layering of the paint creates a special illusion that forms beneath the surface texture and as a result imitates the outdoors.

The energy of the process and the diverse results, suggest themes of flux, endlessness and organic decay.

A recent quote by sculptor Tony Cragg seems to characterize my thoughts:

"I like thinking with materials; you move, it moves, towards a destination you haven't envisaged. The most rewarding thing is to come to a brand new form - what the Greeks call 'poesis' you get to a point where no one has been before."

This process of painting is a constant challenge…it is a frustration always fighting for control (through lack of a paintbrush) but it is exhilarating!

I work as a free artist with the experience of more than 25 years, to develop art and design solutions for real estate, landscape, interieurs. I have many-sided interests. Art, philosophy, literature, religion, music, language, policy, life, nature. I am in search of contacts they positively change my life.
