"I have developed my own immediate response to a technique developed by the artist Jackson Pollock, whilst studying his process at university. His unique style has inspired me to produce a fluid, energetic, representational reaction to his work. Working mainly in acrylic paint, ink or domestic emulsion paint, I work directly from the tube or paint pot using a stick or tube to flick and direct the paint from a standing position over the paper or canvas. With my work I am interested in expressing a sense of power, movement and strength, whatever the subject matter."
