Artist Statement

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.

This interpretation of a landscape is an exciting process for me, and this new collection of work is increasingly abstract. I begin at one location and the process takes me on a journey to a new place– imagined and at the same time, remembered. The finished work is always a surprise.

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