Tell us about your work

The subject of my work often reflects my surroundings; this is the basis for a process that develops conceptually before any production. The recent work is a series of abstracted skylines an architectural and formal investigation and confusion of line and colour.

I try to bring vigour into materials more readily available from Officeworks rather than an art store; Texta, board, rulers and graph paper. I’m interested in exploring new ideas about painting with a recent installation that reconfigures the gallery space into a physical extension of the paintings also exhibited.
