From representational/figurative beginnings there has been a slow but inexorable slide into abstraction. The less tangible, the more ambiguous, these are the elements for which I have striven. A blank canvas stands in front of me. The challenge? To somehow leave a part of me embedded in paint. The process I am not aware of, neither have care of, leaving much to random chance and serendipity.


The call of the mountains has always been strong: their majesty and brutality overpowering any grandiose feelings of self. To see them is a wonder: to paint them is a joy.

“The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery.”
Francis Bacon (28 Oct 1909 - 28 Apr 1992)
