"My drawings are an exploration of the relationships primarily between colours and free-hand forms, resulting in playful colourful abstractions, sometimes reminiscent of still lifes, landscapes or objects in strange, animated scenes; mutated and saturated to an almost alien aesthetic. My best drawings are made when I don't have a plan for the image. I will make a mark and react with a series of instinctive responses, letting the image grow organically on the page. When I draw I try to think less about what 'should' be drawn and let my inhibitions and pre-judgments fall away, making way for an authentic and consistent thought process, letting the colours and shapes speak for themselves, allowing the drawing to simply be what it is."
