MY STORY

I respond intuitively to each of the landscapes that I have walked and seek to capture the elemental nature and energy of a place rather than to record a literal interpretation. Ancient wisdom is often believed to be embedded in the landscape. Many cultures attribute spiritual significance to natural elements, viewing landscapes as repositories of collective knowledge and energy. Exploring such places allows me to gain a deeper understanding of the cultural tapestry woven into the land.

I like to contrast elements of tight, structured paint work with loose, atmospheric washes and gestural marks. Colour and texture are both dominant elements in my paintings. Expect to see a mixture of sweeping brush strokes, palette knife work, dripping paint, scratched back surfaces and washy pools of paint.
Like the patina of time, my work is multi-layered and built up and scraped back over time. This adds both depth and textural variety to my outcomes.
