Through a rich tapestry of paint, texture and occassionally collage, my aim is create paintings which will intrique the viewer to want to look closer, to feel a sense of the atmosphere of the energy in the land, sea and sky.
Exploring the relationship between passing time, nature and landscape provides an endless source of inspriation.
Working in multiples on canvas or wooden boards inspiration for my paintings begins with reference to photographs and a hybrid of memories. Beginning with layers of intuitive, explorative loose brushstokes and marks the layers of paint evolve and each painting begins to develop its own unique identity and the pace of work begins to slow.
The final stages become more considered while still allowing plenty of time for intuitive responses to make their mark. The goal being to keep a sense of spontaneity within the painting to keep it feeling alive and dynamic.
