I am inspired to paint places and things I see around me. I am struck by light on objects and the space. Then my painting becomes all about color and how the colours create a flat abstract design, and at the same time, distance and form and light.
Based on the things I see, I look for the geometric design within the rectangle or square of the surface, and work on a painting until it becomes a satisfying combination of relatable elements.
More recently I have incorporated photographs into the paintings as they appear in the local environment and at the time of production. Mixing reality with my fantasy world.
