Paintings frequently start by writing on the paper or canvas; poems, thoughts, stories, ideas then the paint flows. The words transgress to colour, regularly without traditional form.“I paint instinctively, with passion and raw emotion. Often the writing is lost or hidden to the progression of the painting and the expression of the works theme or story. The paintings always have a depth and meaning to them, they are my way of telling stories…I use colour the way others use words”
The colours and title allude to the meaning, the energy of the brush stroke tell the works story. The colours’ vibrancy swells from the work and embraces the viewer often evoking a connection that draws the viewer back repeatedly to a painting.
