I seek out pattern and colour – from handcrafted knitting or crocheting to tangled foliage and stems of the growth pattern in nature. Working in the traditional medium of oil, I take a macroscopic view, often at a scale larger than life, and strive for a strong tactile quality, building up layers of paint. I explore colouristically the drama in the patterns, suggesting the history and chronology of the subject’s creation, growth and endurance.
