Places affect me. When I find a landscape that moves me, I take photos which become the starting point for my work in the studio.

I paint in a very intuitive way, building up paint on canvas in thin washes then eventually thicker impastos. Experimenting with mediums and glazes and colour upon colour, I add or take away until the feeling seems right.

In the end there must be an emotional connection to the final painting, for me and ultimately for the viewer.
