My passion is combining acrylic and text-based collage, with the
reoccurring themes of communication, society and decay.
Balancing the opacity of paint has become as important to me as mixing
colour, as transparency is vital for the text to show through. I play
with this balance until I am satisfied that the underlying message of
the piece has been successfully communicated.
Each painting has its own back-story and I like to think that every
painting is a new interpretation of the original article.
Communication through structure rather than language, is where I am
currently focusing my attention.
