After getting my house renovated I ended up with a bunch of sample books for various paints and radiators that came in loads of different colours. Being a big of a magpie for colourful things, I kept hold of them.

Eventually, I came up with the idea of using the colour samples for a series of abstract pictures. The limitation of working with just what samples I had was part of the attraction, as it forced me to focus on the resources at hand; if I ran out of red, then there was no more red.
