The general theme of my paintings is Landscape. Most of my current work is inspired by the coastline in and around my home county of East Sussex
I try not to be too specific about locations, the seasons, or the time of day, I am a studio based artist, whose work is a poetic response to the memory of the landscape, and I do not consider myself as a painter of topographical views.
I am inspired by the concept of ‘the sublime’, in nature. A term coined by the 19th-century romantics to express the overwhelming beauty, awe, and power of nature.
At first glance my paintings may appear ‘loose and gestural’ and although I am open to chance and the occasional ‘happy accident’ my paintings are considered and carefully built up with successive overlays of painting.
