I like to play around with the idea that there is an order within chaos!

I have always been fascinated by the way our brains perceive the world around us. Everything we see is represented by countless microscopic cells of colour. The closer we view these cells the more random they appear.  Then when we pull away the brain stitches these cells together to generate an image. It is this phenomenon that I use to create my paintings.

I design my paintings to work on two levels. Firstly as an abstract. A myriad of coloured cells that only hint at the image they are trying to portray. Then secondly a detailed image that reveals its self with startling clarity.

I hope you like the results.
