Artists Statement 


I am inspired by the French Lyrical Abstract style, which can be seen as a balanced elegant style of painting that is loaded with content from the natural world, often marked by sumptuous colour.  


French Lyrical Abstraction is about expressing something personal, subjective and emotive, and to do it in a poetic, abstracted way. 

I use colours to explore the relationship between nature and art, and its continuing transformation. Changing from minute to minute, nature provides the perfect symbols for all our emotions in life: sorrow, joy, regret, yearning, wanting, frustration, anger, love, and more. Nature depict life in all its messy, glorious, colourful and fleeting moments.

I use a unique technique of my own invention, by creating a thickly applied layered surface full of small impasto markings of paint with a palette knife.  This decadent surface of texture brings my abstraction to life.

My intention is to create finished work that is abstracted and more expressional than representational and I endeavor to generate a sense of intimacy while leaving the subject open to interpretation. 

I have exhibited world wide and my paintings can be found in private collections in France, UK, USA, Canada, Italy, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Australia, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, China and South Africa.
