"For me painting is about using all I know and feel to reflect my experience of the world. Within this there is movement, gesture; the act of hand and paintbrush on paper or canvas. They all include this energy of movement, a potential to change. I’m addicted to this potential, this very honest moment; the striped back truth of an immediacy between hand, paintbrush and paint. In a way they are all indications or vestiges of this potential."
