Mixed media techniques answer an ongoing need for a working method with maximum immediacy, allowing me to impose quick decisions and move beyond the formality of painterly representation. It reflects a composite sensibility based on fragments of visual memory. I've combined techniques from painting, monoprint and collage. Some of these were done as  finished works, from 2000-2008. Some are collages and studies on duralar done as preparatory explorations for the current acrylic paintings on Sintra board done 2019-22. These use collected motifs and imagery from previous sources with improvised line, pattern and texture from nature. With their combined imagery, I call them Restless Forms.
