"My work is an exploration of the possibilities of abstract line drawings and an examination of the relationship between seeing, perception and understanding what is seen or unseen. More recently I have started to explore the interrelationship, transition and break between drawing, painting and its expansion into space and sculpture.
The repetition of lines and grids as a compositional format are a constant throughout my work and the subject of continuous renewal and reinvention.The process of the work is often secondary to the concept which questions conventional representation.
Rather than isolating individual works they often become part of constructions in a space where each work relates or emerges from the other. By trying to overcome boundaries, the 'between space' , the work is at once drawing, painting, sculpture and installation."
