"these paintings are inspired by aspects of our natural environment: the way that the arrangement of organic shapes, light and colour suggest aspects of landform, landscape that are familiar to us all.
the starting point is colour. i choose a colour or series of colours which best approximate the feelings i experience when observing a particular phenomenon. i strive to find the kernel or nub of the experience of seeing by means of colour, gradually building up layer upon layer of thin washes interspersed by colour-infused glazes. the focal point, the interior depth suggests the spirit of place."
