My work has evolved from merely creating an impression of the landscape of those places which inspire me. Whilst I am still drawn to those places with that special light that occurs where the land meets the sea or water, 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 abstract in nature, and are defined by an observation of natural and organic forms in the landscape. These images find me striving to reflect my search for beauty, peace and stillness in an often chaotic world.

Recently completed works are intended to involve the viewer and I have tried to introduce an element of journey within them, with points of entry and departure. 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.

Abstraction is experiencing the ‘absence of subject' or the 'freedom from subject'. This eliminates the ‘security' of a recognisable form thus causing the viewer to involve their own imagination in resolving the image or declining the 'challenge'.

I have a passionate love of colour, and have been influenced by the work of Barbara Rae, Kurt Jackson, David Blackburn and Brian Rutenberg amongst others.
