Combinations of surface marks with the experimentation and creation of new textures and the constant play between elements of colour, line, shape and form have become distinctive characteristics of my work.
The surface of my paintings is reworked and scraped back, marks are buried and rediscovered. a gradual process of layering and accrual is applied, always allowing the traces of the paintings construction to be revealed.
