Portraiture, so far, seems to govern my work. I use paint to represent faces and to manipulate the mood in which they are set. I feel that narrating a mood is about harmonising colour, and experimenting with light and atmosphere.
I am always impressed by the illusion of depth and believable space that comes from successful representational painting, and I find the physicality of painting exciting. I am still very much investigating where my paintings are going. I want to use my learnt skills to try and place my faces and figures in a emotional environment and tell a story.
