“My paintings nod to home and the familiar, but also look at the strange familiarity of somewhere never visited. There is always an impression of my immediate environment but rarely are they faithful depictions. These seem to be the themes that constantly sit alongside my work – although each painting is driven by the act of painting itself. Embracing what’s found and lost – and what always seems to be left, in the end, is a view.”
