"My work draws inspiration from the semi abstract nature of landscape and interpreting a 'sense of place', incorporating the sounds, smells and atmosphere of the place or subject . My work is drawn from my own memory to create works that are abstracted and expressional. I am particularly interested in light of nature and weather its impact and transformation on the appearance of the landscape."
The great outdoors is my studio, I am one of those mad all year round plein air Watercolour Artists.
As for my work, I aim to capture the atmosphere, light and essence of what I see around me. The subjects I paint are vast, I cannot predict what I will see that inspires in any particular moment. It might be hazy light, a storm or a feeling of deja vu. I just know I love it!
