My studiowith pathways leading over and across, every which way. Dramatic skies, constant cloud movement. Trees are lone sentinels reaching for the sky;


beneath them grows a carpet of bracken and vast expanses of lush heather with proud gorse.

Peering through the density of tree trunks to a backdrop of bright blue I notice the contrast of light on a carpet of leaves. I use my camera and sketchbook with minimal media to capture these scenes.

Back in the studio, having gathered a wealth of visual material I begin to explore marks on a variety of surfaces.

Time is spent with underpainting and then I return to my multi-layering processes. My passion is surface and colour and for me oil as a paint medium brings the surface to life. The more you look at a painting and its development the more you see!
