ARTIST STATEMENT

I am an artist with an ongoing interest in exploring abstracted landscapes, urban landscapes and the human figure. Through sustained study of a theme I’m learning more about myself and the world.  My figurative work is textured and layered, accented with colour, loose, fluid and expressive.  I like to capture the body in suspended movement, yet contained within the constraints of the environment it is in.
