My practice is a combination of working from observation, memory, and intuition. Often one painting becomes a source for another. I am interested in the relationships between painting and time: the timelessness of painting, and the way that painting takes one out-with the time of the everyday, both as painter, and as viewer. Over lockdown, I found myself painting bodies of water - pre-occupied with notions of floating, of being suspended and enveloped, safe in solitude.
