As an animator I specialised in 4 legged movement, and decided to translate that knowledge into painting. I wanted to use the anmial as a means of dividing the surfac, to bring it back to life in a single frame. I have become increasingly interested in the surface ina  more abstract way. I was given a pot of gold as a present and it is no use leaving it in the pot. I needed to get away from the animals and sit and stare for a while, so I have been sitting and staring at things that don’t go anywhere and do strange things when you look at them for a length of time. This has allowed me to regard things differently and given me more freedom to play.
