Each piece I create is an attempt to connect with my inner self, the subconcious centre. This is nothing new and has been an aim mankind has been persuing through art from the outset. My hope is that the viewer sees something from his inner self reflected back at him.
Colour and form play a key role in my work. I explore how patterns affect the interaction of colours, their intensity and their relationships to each other and the viewer. I wish to continue to progress and explore this area further.
My current work draws mainly upon both abstraction and non-objective art practice. Connections interest me, how things are linked together either phyiscally or metophorically. It may be as complicated as how one person holds a whole community together or as simple as how a leaf connects to a stem. I want to capture the emotion these connections create and how we are changed by them.
I am influenced by artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, The Blue Rider Group , Frank Bowling, Njideka Akunyili Crosby and lesser know artists such as Moe Brooker.
The spontaneity of printmaking plays an important part in my work.

My philosophy is that art is a path to expressing my true inner self, it is therefore influenced by my experiences and feelings.
