For many years I have focused my energies and work in the direction of abstract painting and drawing. I am fascinated by the juxtaposition of conscious thought and the automatism of the sub-conscious coming together and bringing the unexpected. I liken this to relationships between external and internal expressions of existence. In my current paintings I am working with grids which have surfaced in my work at various times. I see the grid as a conscious symbol of the repetitiveness of life. I find this to be very liberating for my internal process.
