For me, painting is as much about controlled play as a means of expressing emotion and making sense of the world. Inspiration comes from various, random sources.

What I like about abstract painting is the freedom to juxtapose colours and shapes. I use acrylics for their vibrant colours and the luminous effect they produce.

Collage is another medium I work with. I arrange scraps of painted paper into structured compositions which often produce serendipitous results. Sometimes paintings and collages inform and influence each other.
