I have always been drawn to water, and am an enthusiastic wild swimmer. I like how the experience of being in water reminds us of our smallness, and I try to express this in my work by examining how the water distorts and shifts the body. My works is also about time; I paint from photographs with a short exposure, and the brief split second that is captured is then painstakingly transferred to canvas over many many hours.
