The creative process, exploration, and the element of surprise have always excited me whether I’m printing Monotypes or creating Abstract paintings. The monotype is often described as a painterly form of the printmaking, my paintings could be seen as an extension of my monotype process, the two mediums allow me to explore the different possibilities both mediums have to offer. Painting is as exhilarating and challenging as the Monotype process but in a much different way. In my paintings layering of paint evolves over time, sanding areas reveal interesting textures, surprising marks and depth in the imagery on the painted surface. For me painting is an exercise in immediacy and an opportunity to approach the whole of my studio practice from a different perspective.
