Professionally, I was trained to create invisible repairs with perfectly matched colour, gloss and texture – in other words repair scratches and apply paint. As a sculptural artist I create scratches and remove paint. My sculptures expose an almost innumerable range of differently coloured paint layers and reveal exciting colours and psychedelic effects.
