Finding and creating patterns in images has fascinated me for as long as I can remember, and I believe it all stems from my musical background. I grew up with hearing and playing a myriad of rhythmic and melodic motifs in my piano pieces. As the music progressed, these particular melodic fragments would reappear, either in their entirety or slightly altered, injecting new colour and melodic interest and variation.
This sense of inter-connection, of linking parts, of creating larger scale canvases, both in a musical and artistic sense have proved to be a fertile ground for my imagination. Strong, angular geometric shapes and patterns, like the highs and lows of a skilfully constructed melodic phrase, all interconnect to create something larger than themselves with a ‘flow’ and continuity of line.
