I was studying at Edinburgh College of Art when the funny farm finally caught up with me. At the time i was delving into what I later found out where my ‘primal impulses’. The impulses of ‘activity’ and ‘bonding/rejection’. These impulses are what makes up our personality. What we pull towards us and what we push away from us. I was mainly painting with the ‘bonding impulse’ in mind. Material things I couldn’t afford made there way into large scale mixed media pieces. Suddenly I could posses these material things without purchasing them….an absolute revelation.
Well, today I haven’t changed much. I still paint what I love and what gives me the most pleasure. I paint with instinct. I love what I do.
