 Artist’s Statement

Art does not repro­duce the vis­i­ble; it makes vis­i­ble.”  Paul Klee.

The quote above, by the great German/Swiss artist Klee, sums up my approach to art in a few, brief words.  My work is concerned with personal inter­pret­a­tions and expressions rather than imit­a­tions or mimesis. It is about ‘mak­ing vis­ible’ and the endless pos­sib­il­it­ies that this allows. An artwork, to me, seems to have a life of its own and I am happy to let it take me in the direc­tion it wants to go.
