This website focuses mostly on displaying examples of highly expressive lyrical abstract paintings but the gamut of my creative practice is wide.
I create using a mixture of both artistic intuition and formal considerations and each painting evolves in its own way. Human experience, emotion, and my own personal life journey form the centre of my work. The brokeness of human experience fascinates me, as well as the potential for growth and renewal.

Below are some detail images from two of my paintings. Because of the attention I pay to the surface qualities of the paint and other materials, the appearance of the paintings often changes significantly over the course of a day, and according to different lighting conditions.

" LOVE bade me welcome; yet my soul drew back,
Guilty of dust and sin.
But quick-eyed Love, observing me grow slack
From my first entrance in,
Drew nearer to me, sweetly questioning
If I lack'd anything. "
Quoted from the poem Love (III) by George Herbert: George Herbert. 1593–1632
