Biography

“My work at first glance appears to be very simple, just bands of colour; but these bands are imbued with subtlety and balance. I use a variety of textures; flatness, depth, shiny and matt surfaces, opacity and clarity to try to achieve a certain balance and harmony. For these pictures to look so simple takes a surprisingly long time; many layers of paint are built up and often removed before I achieve the completed final image. The painted surface contains many subtleties and slowly the picture begins to determine itself, maybe one colour which then dictates the course of the whole, one large area leading to smaller ones, one part scraped and complex next to many flat simpler areas, or maybe painted with broad sweeping brushstrokes or small feathery ones.”
