As a landscape artist, my work is culled from a selection of landscape memories of those places which have inspired me and continue to inspire me, notably Cornwall, Catalunya, Picardy but particularly East Anglia.

I am fascinated by the sheer variety of landscape to be found here, from the muddy creeks of North Norfolk to the dunes and shingle beaches of Suffolk to the Brecklands of Norfolk and the immensity of East Anglian skies over the Cambridgeshire Fens where I live, to those places with that special light that occurs where the land meets the sea or water.

My work has evolved from merely creating an impression of the landscape and I have now arrived at a point where my interest is more in texture and colour rather than in form.

I work intuitively and find myself blissfully unaware of the direction a work will take on any given day in the studio. The images I create have become more abstract in nature, and are defined by an observation of natural and organic forms in the landscape. These images find me striving to reflect that spirit of place, that essence, as part of my search for beauty, peace and stillness in an often chaotic world.

In recently completed works I have tried to introduce an element of journey and I try to reveal aesthetic appeal in unlikely places and ask the viewer to consider things otherwise ignored, and to 'feel' the surface with their eyes
