Over a period of time a mantra crept into my painting process. At first I wasn't aware of it or of the healing that was occurring while I was working.

As part of my painting process I break down the large areas with a grid system allowing me to focus on the detail, this makes the painting more manageable. Gradually, as the painting develops square by square, a patchwork quilt effect is created. Each square becomes a tiny abstract piece in its own right.

After meticulous planning and preparation, the painting process takes on its own life as the planning gives way to a more free-spirited approach. Layers of accidental colour develop by applying glazes and opaques together and allowing colours to drift, drag and dribble into each other.
