Artist Statement

The starting point for my paintings is usually a drawing,photograph or watercolour sketch made outside.

Water, rocks, and rusty metal, decaying wooden structures, things that change, or are gradually worn down over time.

Then in the studio, I start painting, layering colours, scraping and making marks in an intuitive way, whilst remembering the place that inspired me and recalling the emotions I experienced as I worked there…

Colour is what excites me most about what I do.
