Artist Statement

My paintings reflect the landscapes that I enjoy exploring, especially wild remote hills and moors. I trudge these places armed with a sketchbook and a few basic drawing materials. Back in my studio I flick through the sketchbook until a drawing or series of drawings seem to speak. Then the adventure begins, exploring possibilities much as I explored new terrain. Images are built up, maybe using collage or liquid graphite, and layers of thin acrylic paint are intermingled with line. I draw on my memories as much as the sketches, remembering the scents on the wind and the changing light.
