How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

My paintings are made gradually over many months, layer by layer, scraping back in places to reveal under layers, drawing into the paint and sometimes adding collage. I make paintings to express my experience of and concerns with the world. The paintings are always an emotional response to something that has moved me - music, poetry, nature, politics - which, hopefully, the viewer can connect with on some level.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Painting is my means of communication. It is a way to make sense of our increasingly troubled world and I believe artists can often provide solace, inspiration and beauty through their work.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I am an abstract artist working in oil paint on canvas.
