‘My practice works in the domain of painting and always involves semi-abstract or surreal elements, so that my work is ambiguous and aims to be a personal and engaging experience. My paintings evoke half-imagined landscapes and otherworldly vistas. The Romantic tradition heavily inspires my work; Turner’s expressive layering and depth, and Friedrich’s sublime atmospheres. However, I combine old and new by including more contemporary creative elements, such as vivid colours and spontaneous mark-making, for example dripping paint and creasing the canvas. This playful approach is integral to my work’s finished appearance and creates a relationship between process and representation; the idea of coaxing an image out of the results of exploration is fascinating to me.’
