I sculpt and paint to resolve artistic
tension. believe that art emanates from a mythological and ‘magical'
wellspring. These themes are apparent in much of my work, sculpture and
paintings. Even my landscapes are linked to a spiritual connection to the
environment and the human experience. In terms of technique, I plan my work
conscientiously, drawing first, and formulating a mental picture of how I will
approach the piece. Then I generally apply an underpainting, which is corrected
and re-ssessed. Once satisfied, I apply the finalizing glazes. I use many
forms of reference, some photographic, some on-site. Ultimately, a painting
takes on its own life.
