I often compare making art to solving a puzzle. Every mark and its placement effects the next move. I am continuously searching for solutions to maintain a balance between colours, shapes, line and texture. Nothing is predetermined. It is in a continuous state of cause and effect until the last mark is placed.
Using colour and a variety of mark making techniques, I transform the blank paper into a rhythmic pattern of colour. The viewer is free to enjoy the movement and conceptualize their own meaning.
