2018 began with a conscious effort to experiment with a reduced palette and new materials, in some respects, to simplify the language.
The mark making process is one of the most interesting aspects of recent work and I am continuing with the idea of allowing the image to merge with and emerge from the background, rather like the wildlife itself. It’s a move towards a more expressive portrayal of the subject. The process is continually evolving but the subject of animals remains a major focus of my work. My studio is surrounded by a wealth of wildlife only emerging in fleeting moments, hopefully just long enough to inspire. Can't wait to see where this journey takes me!
