I consider myself to be a patient expressionist.
I want to absorb the landscape. To wait, sit back and simply observe colours. Although influenced by the big K’s; Kandinsky and de Kooning, I feel a closer affiliation with Australian painters such as Elisabeth Cummings, Tony Tuckson and Ken Whisson and their strength through simplicity in paint.
With a continuing exploration of signs within the landscape, I have developed a strong body of work that focuses on the broader issue of our intrusion and/or relationship to our immediate environment. Although working mainly in oils, drawing or collection of found objects are often the basis and at times become integrated within works.
