“The aim of my art is to produce images that evoke the experience of landscape, not in a literal representation, but as an instinctual response to how light affects shapes and colours.

The works of the contemporary British artist Nicholas Jones and the American artist Helen Frankenthaler are my inspirations, as well as the freshness of children’s art and the naive artists such as Winifred Nicholson and Mary Newcomb.

I enjoy looking for the abstract within the representational and enjoy simplicity in art and design.  Working in oil paint, acrylic, watercolour, inks and gouache, my aim is to focus on the physicality of the medium, allowing some freedom for the materials to speak of themselves so that the colours and accidental shapes reflect a beauty of their own.”
