Life is about negotiation, compromise – it’s something you learn, as you get older.  Alice Neel, Elizabeth Peyton and Marlene Dumas inspire me to create work that is psychological and reveals some of the weaknesses of the human condition.

Painting is for me, also a negotiation between materials and myself.  I never draw anything; I never work out beforehand what will be.  My most successful works are an intense relationship between myself, subject, material, constantly reworking until the piece is complete.

Watercolour increases this relationship that I have with my work.  With oil painting there is always that chance to remove, rework.  With my Watercolour everything is laid bear, every wrong move is exposed but often they bring something new and exciting to the work.

Oil painting is a different experience, and my watercolour work informs my approach to oils,  I like to work in one medium until I have reached a point where I can't move things forward and then move to the other medium and keep pushing things forward.
