Still life and all that it includes, forms the basis of my work. I observe the pleasure and beauty in life's ordinary domestic rituals and the items involved.

I explore and experiment with ideas of shape, form, pattern, colour and composition. Strong simplified graphic shapes can be juxtaposed alongside pattern or expressive colour and mark making. I work in the medium of print, painting, collage and mixed media and indeed all can be combined within the same artwork. Some pictorial motifs are often reused, allowing for new ideas and works to evolve. Nothing is fixed from the outset, the work is allowed to evolve and grow through the "act of making".
