this is the place where things should be written
the only roadmap provided


my work is an expression about who i am and where i have come from. it is about grounding me here now in this history. in this moment

i photograph my daily commute to the studio taking in things that stand out. for me its the subtle things we regularly miss as we rush about. things that scream for observation. for recognition. scenes colours shapes vibrancies that stop me in my tracks. i see art everywhere

i paint with acrylic oils and found materials on anything i can find. i paint with spray paint. draw with charcoal. i have a need to create. to make art

i work both consciously and subconsciously sometimes gently and other times forcefully. destructing to construct. subtracting to create. exploring detours and deviations through erasing and minimalising

i write draw and scribble on paper. i work as a child discovering items for the first time. exploring pushing challenging myself and the materials i have to hand. nothing is sacred until it is complete
