“My work is simply about the expression and exploration of various types of line to create a mul-titude and range of Shapes and Pattern. This is a predominant feature of my work. Defining my-self essentially as an Abstract artist, I work mainly with Acrylic paint (and mixed media on occa-sions including the digital Artform). I love the freedom to express and create almost in an intuitive and instinctive manner depicting a range of styles from strong, bold geometric shapes to free-flowing, cursive and floral forms. Very often I will use a range of subject matter in my work that reflects my religious, cultural and traditional roots. This is significantly why I tend to use the Ara-bic script quite frequently. However, the main and dominant feature in my work is, and will al-ways remain, the strong array of shapes, pattern and colour that seems to dominate and essen-tially, ‘take over’ the overall composition”
