About me

I paint what appeals to me and change my working method to suit the subject matter. Currently I have been enjoying making monoprints using a gelatin plate, I then use those prints to make my collage paintings. This work is very meditative and involves a lot of problem solving which stimulates me and keeps me in my painting zone.
