I spent years painting mood paintings, expressions I wanted to pass on, the spirit of the subject I was absorbing. I explored letter writing as a means of articulating relationships from ones imagination. Throughout I continued to carry a note book with me, accumulating many completed notebooks I began to look through at my history of ideas and decided on a direction for future work. The here and now for me. ‘Mindfulness’ manifesting itself into my work. Exploration of the here and the now as a means for creating a future of fulfilled ambition.
