I create acrylic and mixed media abstracts, semi-abstracts, and contemporary paintings based on observation of the world around me. My works are bold and expressive. I predominately base my work on the present landscape, landscapes observed while travelling, still life set ups and still life in its’ existing environment. I paint loosely from reference photos and memory. I also occasionally sketch small works on site and may reproduce a larger more abstract version in the studio. My works contain colour relationships, impasto texture, movement, geometry and layers. I see the world and I paint it.
