Through painting I conduct archaeological digs into recollections, experiences

and lived spaces. Here I find openings to reflect on placeness, cynefin and the

evocative landscape of mid Wales. 


My work is constructed on a framework, which is broken down but never lost. I

begin with blocky structures, which unravel over time. Differences in formal registers

allow for a focused, analytical engagement with paint and the properties of pigments.

Some areas are thick and tarry, while others allow the light of the ground to project

through the paint. This light is vital. It is the lifeblood of the painting. 


The canvas is a reflective site for examination and a place for contemplation and

openness. Each painting is an exercise in give and take and a response to a sequence of

events and resolutions: a record of time spent looking, moving and thinking.
