"What seems like chance or serendipity actually reflects years of honed skills in measuring, blending, searching to find what
responds to my inner sense of how colours, light and dark, compete - tensions release, conflict and resolution - an echo of life - its journey of holding back and letting go - paying attention to
the tiniest detail and seeing the broader picture at the same time. Over my varied encounters with art viewers I have found that a work of art doesn't only exist in a vacuum and once it leaves
the scrutiny of meeting my original conception it acquires a dimension through "conversation" with the observer and their impressions, questions, reflections. It is the ultimate witness to the
fruitfulness of my creative work to see such reactions and to share in their varied interpretations."
