I paint intuitively with porcelain slip, reimagining this traditional material into wafer thin strata of beauty, delicacy and strength. Working meditatively, I layer these to create a canvas of pattern, contrast and harmony.

Adding pigments by hand, I experiment to create the fluid palette of indistinguishable colour gradients that often feature in my work. The luminosity of the sky inspires me, a passing moment of sunlight hitting an object or a more detailed study at dusk or dawn. A colour combination or a quality of light, I keep my eyes open to discover and absorb the things that surround me.
