I paint in this way with watercolour because it celebrates so much of what I value about life: the new and the old and the perfectly imperfect. A celebration of simplicity. Of unpredictability and the invitation to serendipity. As I explore these themes, my works move between abstraction and figuration. My obsession lies in the process of wrestling with pigment and water, of manipulating it within the confines of the edge of the painting, until it looks‚ beautiful to me.
