"I make paintings, drawings and prints that are concerned with Abstract or Landscape themes, or in some cases a combination of both. I use colour in Abstract work for its expressive potential. Colour has the ability to evoke emotions, create sensations and suggest feelings. The beauty and power of colour is central to the images I make in much of my work and is an intrinsic part of the subject matter."
