Artist statement :
Originally from Plymouth, the source of my work is mainly landscape, from observation but also from memory and experiences. I now live in Somerset and work from my studio. I work intuitively to try to find a balance between various elements of texture, movement and geometry found within the landscape.
Some can be representational although often I reflect on the emotional response to the natural environment which can lead into abstraction.
I try to paint what I see and also what I feel which is equally important to me.
Ranging from textures on rocks, the elements, how light reflects on water, patterns in sand, simplifying shapes, pebbles, seaweed and surfaces all become some of the themes in the paintings.
By using layers of colour, under-layering of paint and blocking out shapes this helps create the textures I wish to capture.
Initially I allow myself to be led by the paint and the marks, then later take control of the materials, refining as it develops.
The paintings undergo many additions, revealing other textures and colours before I would consider them ‘complete’ and finished.
