My landscapes are dynamic, strong and vigorous both in imagery, colour and texture while my ideas and concepts in paintings and drawings reflect the passion I have for the natural environment.
Working with heavily layered medium and brushwork, I revel in the lushness and maneuverability of oils and enjoy the physicality of working with images of the earth in all its forms. Colour ways are bold contrasting in their interaction with large areas of white space. I offer viewers the opportunity to step through into another world, to visually immerse themselves in and open their minds to the drama, power and vulnerability of the natural world.
By looking at landscapes both above and below the surface, there is the recognition that what we see above is only a small proportion of the earth’s crust, by combining with the vast skies; I want to understand and interpret the complete panorama.
