I tend to work intuitively and often from memory. Not knowing entirely where the painting will take me is partly what drives me as an artist.
A large part of my practice is about the movement of paint and how it behaves with little or no manipulation. I apply paint allowing it to rest as it chooses. I then work into this ground adding layers of interest. Occasionally washing off partially or rubbing back. Ultimately, I allow the initial layers of paint to lead me to the final outcome of the painting.
I am based at Krowji Studios, Redruth, Cornwall.
