My intention is to catch a moment that tells a story. As a tonalist I use a limited palette to give a reflective memory-like mood to the paintings.
I draw on everyday objects, situations and environments. My interest involves presenting a scene that implies human interaction within a
landscape or environment but without human presence, leaving a trace of energy – inviting the viewer to interpret a calm, melancholic or
amusing narrative. The work is based on the familiar or a personal memory, creating an intimate inner experience that imprints on the painting.
