‘My work can be described as contemporary abstract landscape.

My primary aim is to create an atmosphere and feel rather than what you see around you. I like to immerse the viewer in my paintings, whilst allowing them to imagine their own places and create an emotional response in what they see.

I work primarily with oil paint on canvas. I use various mark making methods including scratching the canvas and sometimes applying the paint with my hands – a technique that leaves strong evidence of a human trace in the work.

I like the viewer to see the movement captured within the painting. I use a variety of techniques to create this, varying from vigorous brush strokes with thick paint to thin glazes.

The inspiration for my work comes from my passion for travel and an attempt to bring to life the colours and landscapes I have experienced and put this on a canvas.’
