About My Work
I would describe myself as a colourist painter. I love the changing light on the landscape. My favourite time of the day is that magical moment at last light when everything appears to intensify and stand still.
My interior spaces are about places we inhabit and our half forgotten memories of being there. These are the most abstract and lyrical of my works, they are often prompted by everyday objects. The absent figure in the painting is the viewer who brings their own interpretation to the painting.
