“In my paintings, the subject matter evokes spaces that are symbolic and transitional- the space between two places. Water, bridges, distant horizons, dreams- these are all the stuff of cliché yet for me are vehicles for painterly invention. Shapes and images respond to each other as the pictures evolve. The act of painting itself is a kind of bridge between the actual world and intuitive fantasy.”
