ARTIST STATEMENT

The environments around me have always inspired my artistic practice and have a long-standing influence on the imagery, aesthetics and compositional structure of my work.

Created in the studio environment I consider my paintings, drawings and mixed media pieces as imaginative ‘conglomerates’ that draw on experience, memory and popular media – television, Internet, magazines and newspapers.

The flattening of the picture plane, use of horizontal and vertical line and application of varying perspectives result in fictional works loosely based on real places and events and representing familiar landscapes.

I’m very interested in what I see as the ‘abstract’ in the natural world – the lineal characteristics and patterning in the landscape, the distinctive and varying colour palettes, shapes, shadow and light.
