Colour, surface and mark are the driving forces behind my practice.  My subject matter is found in the everyday - predominately in the unorganised still lives of home and garden paraphernalia.  Often just being caught by the haphazard placement of one object beside another, I get lost in visual connects, manipulating space and looking for the abstract values that exist within observation.  Playful in nature, the works begin to take on their own direction, leading me through a dialogue of colour in response to a heavily prepared under surface.
