Present and remembered, steadfast and fleeting, noticed, forgotten and then rediscovered. The trees that inhabit my daily run are the constants that anchor my sense of place. They have become like family or good friends and after 15 years of daily passing offer unconditional and unwavering support.

This experience of the familiar landscape is mirrored in my painting process; old paintings are continuously reworked. Paint is taken away to leave the stains and traces of past images which are then layered with fresh and immediate applications of paint. My love of paint as matter and the physicality of manipulating it is continuously edited down to create a poetic balance of extremes. Old and new, faint and bold, fast and slow, delicate and strong.
