Six Bridges is a collection of recent artwork which includes paintings and a new series of prints. My work is about the way we engage and identify with our environment. I’m inspired by the everyday objects that surround us and with the process and materials of art making. In other words, I like to build things and get my hands dirty. For me, art is about making things. Creating a picture is a physical act. I like to feel the paint, putting it on thick with a knife or scraping it down to the support. It’s a dynamic process, fluid and improvisational.
