When I was young I knew this would be a very long journey with few signposts or directions. Painting in the abstract is almost ineffable. Meaning comes through metaphor, colour and presence. I try to find a resonance with the ‘now’ and believe that a painting that reflects the events, currents and moods of times that it is created in, usually works.

I work mainly in Acrylics on hand stretched Canvas in my studio in Cumbria. There is a space which hovers between a work of Art and it’s viewer where dialogue is created. That images promote discussion, imagination and story is a strong reason for looking at Art. 

My greatest satisfaction in the last few years has come from sharing some of the paintings with Art Therapists, working with children and Young adults. It  has since become my creative focus.
