“I draw influence from the visual world around me; architectural forms, graphic design, pattern, scale and colour grouping. Colour is a driving force behind my work. I play with the juxtaposition of simple forms, manipulating the use of both complementary and contrasting colour palettes, applying a combination of colour theory and instinct.”
