Artist's Statement
My paintings are an emotional response to the natural environment, I am fascinated by shadows and reflections made by seasonal changes and natural light. I enjoy the sensuality of natural textures, leaves, water, grasses, feathers, clouds, and the landscape viewed as a mass of merging colour. Making gestural marks with large brushes, and spreaders to suggest mood, glaze layers and textures build up rapidly creating visual and tactile interest. I like to keep my work fresh and new, developing ideas and trying out new ways of depicting scenes I have experienced to keep my work spontaneous and lively. I choose colours carefully and they generally reflect the season in which the painting is being composed

Transforming a blank canvas into a painting is an exciting process, the first mark is always the hardest to make and dictates the direction the painting will take. Painting is always a co-operative affair between an artist and the canvas. I like my paintings to be an authentic expression of something I have witnessed.

I admire and am influenced by traditional landscape artists like Turner, Constable and Gainsborough, as well as more recent artists such as the French Impressionists, Sir William Nicholson and his son Ben Nicholson, Piet Mondrian, Nicolas de Stael, Paul Klee and Sean Scully and many other living artists.
