It is in my nature to make order and organise; a big part of my new practice is to go “with the flow”. To embrace every mark, whether it be a right or wrong, and take each mark and to accept them all. There are, no right or wrong marks. Simply marks.

My work looks at these individual brush marks, their placement to each other and their relationships to other marks. These brush marks are made often with certain pigments that have a unique personality, not in a sense of their colour, but in how the pigments react to each other, their surface and medium.
I then place these marks in an ordered-chaos, of rhythm, space and time.
