Abstraction for me is an exploration that can acquire beauty with form, the enchantment of the unknown without sentimentality.

The delicate, mobile balance between chance and intention is enhanced by experience. Often allowing an artist to move faster and intuitively, giving excitement, flow and sensitive feeling to the pressure and placement of small marks, without having a verbal reason.

My commitment to abstraction, is for me a means of enlightenment, a kind of magic which captures images of inner feeling beyond thought or mind. The paintings are not to be reasoned with or to be understood they are to be experienced and meditated upon: to be discovered as one might discover light filtering through the leaves or reflections on water.
