As an artist, the fleeting qualities of light and colour excite me. I am trying to grasp the internal qualities, the essential mood and spirit of place. Sometimes I use a straightforward, representational approach, but increasingly I am exploring the abstract. I love to experiment with texture and colour and follow themes and ideas of work, large and small.
I love the wilderness areas, gardening and walking. Having explored the theme of ‘Boundaries’ - fields, walls and fences, the edges of sea and shadows, my current theme is the exploration of the changing colours of the seasons in abstract form.
