About

Landscape has always been a starting point for me, a visual trigger for inspiration. Working from photographs, sketches and memory, each painting evolves in an unpredictable way, through the addition and removal of paint and the spontaneous reactions to accidental marks. I like to use gestural marks and loose brushwork to engage the viewer and charge the composition with movement and dynamism, whilst still maintaining balance, building up the paint in transparent and opaque layers, dripping, washing, splashing, allowing it to take its own fluid course and giving the painting a life of its own.
