My artworks explore the materiality of a combination of oils, mixed media and drawing. As I am inspired by the American Minimalists, I investigate my daily surroundings through creating distorted shapes, forms and motifs. Mark making and the serendipitous accident extend the relationship between painting and drawing. I have recently engaged with spatial configurations within the landscape to provide compositional structures. Through drawing and painting, the juxtaposition of mediums enables me to express the atmosphere of experiencing the landscape. I initiate my artworks through the use of charcoal and further resolve my artworks with oil paint on board. As I resolve my artworks they are further pared back to a limited palette.
