The endlessly shifting patterns of colour, light and reflections of the ocean is an increasing fascination for me. I find the mystery of this dynamic and ancient entity deeply compelling. Water embodies the concept of endlessness, of complexities repeated from one droplet to the vast sea itself, so powerful yet so very fragile .
Initially my work incorporated the sky and the ocean, but gradually my focus has shifted to the waves themselves. The intent of my painting is about being immersed in this presence. I am interested in conveying how the ocean resonates, rather than a literal depiction. Giving the work a decidedly contemporary immediacy and relevance. From one painting to the next, I attend to an ever deepening understanding and engagement with this subject that is ‘moving water’.
