My work revolves around the relationship between process and chance.

I use painting, drawing, printmaking, photography and digital media to develop a way of working that often has no direction or destination, but is guided by the characteristics of particular media and the intervention of chance. I find process very creative and liberating as I can lose control of the work and pick up on 'happy' accidents. The work is, of course, limited by the past and mannerisms.

Process helps to make the work a journey into the unknown. I like to combine processes, but keeping the integrity of each medium and then make work that is on the surface non figurative, but contain many references to the world.

Though formalist in nature the work aims to engage the emotional and metaphysical realms through colour, shape and line.
