Painting is for me a meditation. I love the challenge, the unique movements of the medium, the contrasts of control and unpredictability, the total focus it demands. I enjoy the tension between working within rules, and allowing intuition to speak. Through the play of light and dark, of colours, shapes, textures, lines, the defined and the undefined, the stated and the implied I attempt to capture some essence of my subject, be it in nature, people or objects.
