From paintings of the English coast, to Lake Michigan in Chicago, to Venice, my paintings transform actual places into simplified visions of the very element that defines them – water. Abstractions of weather and season at the sea, the paintings are all about spaces of line, colour and light rather than direct landscape. A fascination with light and shadow, reflection and refraction, pattern and water movement drives my experiments with paint to capture changing luminous qualities. I was born in 1970 in Chicago, USA and immigrated to the UK in my early 20s. I started painting after moving from Scotland down to London, studying painting and printmaking privately with an artist in Greenwich, London. Despite identifying very much as a British artist it's been said my paintings still recall a certain "midwestern" eye for the landscape, inferring flat perspective and vast open spaces.
