Painting before a subject is an immediate and focussing process for me, and I will seek to re create a likeness of what is in front of me with an emphasis on colour and brushstroke. I paint bold still lifes embracing domesticity, natural forms and vital colour to create images that give both myself and the viewer the opportunity of escaping into a satisfying world. I hope that these contribute to countering the barage of negative images we absorb each day in our modern lives.
I paint places that I visit by recording them through photogrpahs sletches and memories. Outcomes are more representative of my feelings for a place that literal descriptions.
