“MIA”

My works are abstract responses to ideas and themes that interest me, whether they emerge from the emotions of life, or from the beauty of the natural world.  For me, spontaneity is key to expressing sensations which cannot be rationalised or put into words.  As Francis Bacon said, ‘if you can say it or write it, don’t paint it’.

Wasily Kandinsky realised that reason limits our imagination:

‘Lend your ears to music, open your eyes to painting and… stop thinking!  Just ask yourself whether the work has enabled you to ‘walk about’ in a hitherto unknown world.  If the answer is yes, what more do you want?’
