I work in multiple styles, which enables me to record everyday experiences in new ways. I paint a diary of my interests and influences, from songs and books to conversations and walks with people. I paint what I feel and therefore my paintings reflect my feelings. When I review my work over many decades, the layering of experience seems to be recorded in surprisingly accurate ways.

If my feelings are hidden, my paintings will be inhibited, and if I allow my feelings to be openly expressed, my paintings will be expressive etc. When I am tuned into a piece of music my paintings start to describe something about the music.

My recent paintings are Abstract Expressionist in essence. Action Painting may be a more accurate description. This energetic style plays to my strengths, I do not find it easy to persue a logical vision in painting, however I am comfortable and familiar with improvisation.
