My usual chaotic approach when starting a  new work, whether it be an abstract piece or  coastal scene is to feverishly apply paint in all directions, creating textures and layers which ‘breath life’ and movement, and form a base from which I can move forward and expand.

In contrast the Still Life works appear more static but the process is much the same.

Using the canvas as a platform I work the paint to describe the three dimensional qualities of the objects as well as creating textures and layers so not to isolate but to create a unity between the painterly surface and object in the given space.
