‘’As a painter, a brother of the brush, I am challenged by form, colour, structure and texture. My painting is emotive, flowing, spontaneous. It rides on the intuitive, on the way I feel. I love moving paint around. I love the power and rhythm of oil paint. Handled well it can be charged full of life’’. Sarah Faulkner
