My work is about landscape. In my paintings I try to convey the spirit and reality of a place. Going beyond the immediate sensation to something felt and experienced.
Many of my locations are very well known to me and have been walked over and drawn many times over a period of years and in differing seasons. In the studio I use this raw material to create a work that is true to the sum of my experience.
I work in a variety of mixed media; oil, acrylic, collage, ink, charcoal, watercolour and gouache, singly or in combinations on paper or canvas.
