My first influence, after the advent of the internet, was a young Japanese artist called Buna, (Masato Takahashi) who uses music, dance and dramatic movement in his live performances (2008 and onwards), to create his paintings. His work gave me a link between my first loves of music, movement, and gestural painting.
I am open to change during the process of making. The result is often expressionistic and semi-abstract. Pieces are frequently based on patterns in nature that are at first sight, random.
A large collection of work comes from the study of stones from a nearby beach, 2014 onwards.
The object brings its own elemental history, and makes itself known.
