Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass. Anton Chekhov

My work explores the idea that what is absent is as important as what is present in the perceiving of form. I am fascinated with colour, gesture, light and dark. With these, I endeavour to meet the challenge of creating the illusion of form emerging from the canvas.

My practice is a slow process of observation, colour creation and the considered, reverential placement of marks on the work’s surface. I invite the viewer to come with me and explore our intriguing world of reality, illusion, how we see, what gives form and ultimately what moves our soul.
