For me painting is about making and looking; process and the visual. My work stands on the belief that painting is at its most compelling when it addresses the specific strengths and unique abilities of the medium; when it concentrates on the fundamental.

Constructions of wood, cloth and pigment exist on their own terms, created out of an engagement with painting’s essential processes and from a passion for the medium and its history. Rather than a vehicle chosen to best deliver a message, Painting is itself the project. I am interested in making paintings that could only be paintings.
