I love working on location, preferably in wet and windy conditions to really capture feelings that are generated by the landscape around me. I enjoy the interference or adaption from weather conditions at that time.
I am influenced by the landscape of the South West, from the Cornish Coastline and Kilve in Somerset to Orkney and some of the lovely Scottish Islands in between. I love to paint landscapes which show little evidence of human intervention. I am currently working on a body of work based on wonderful Dartmoor. The latest works can be seen under landscapes in the gallery.
I use acrylic and handwriting ink with a wet surface, manipulating the ink to create my work. I am working on oil paintings too, especially as influenced by my trips to Dartmoor.
