I've always been intrigued by the feeling of expansion. I work from chaos to order, from entrapment to freedom and confusion to clarity; all expansive feelings to me. The joyful chaos I find around boats and flowers serve most of my inspiration. Boats, rigging, sails, and hulls turn into vibrant and uplifting abstract coastal scenes. The tangled flowers and stems of a garden or floral arrangement are released allowing escapism and breath. Balancing between representation and abstraction I paint with creative abandonment, intuition and a love of colour.
