About

The starting point for all my artwork stems from a lifelong interest in perceptions and memories of colours.  Early childhood memories of South America and since then living in England influence discrete explorations of the vibrant and the muted.

There are two strands to my work: painting on paper or canvas without imagery or abstraction,  having devised a set of parameters or pre-determined rules while allowing for the inevitable chance occurrences when using paint, and responsive works ranging from embroidering words on coat linings to burning all my dream diaries and displaying the ashes in glass cylinders. In these conceptual works, colour choices are still a prime consideration.

I paint on traditional supports in a variety of media, starting with a grid of repetitive patterns that are then lost to view in subsequent overpainting, or using the texture of paper as a ground for the patterns that emerge, in order to give a sense of depth to the resulting monochrome

Some of the many artists who continue to influence me are:
