Each one of this series is a world unto itself.

For me the act of painting is like gardening.  I start with a profusion of colour and chaos, but then prune back the shapes and weed out the unwanted material. 

They are not large paintings; just 12" x 12".  I like to think that they're the sort you tuck into your favourite corner of a room.   Intimate places to discover and escape into.
