As a shy, creative child, resistant to pressure and frustrated by conformity, art gave me a way to express supressed energy with passion. It gave me a focus and a long term emotional equilibrium. I have walked over hills and the coast line all my life it seems obvious to me that they should become major influential subjects. The power of the sea, the drama of light, and cloud formation creating atmosphere across the land, have always inspired me. I love the seasons. Each an every one. They have their own colour system, smells and moods which have called to me, encouraging me to be a part of them. I hope my work connects with those who have a similar passion for the land, sea and sky. In 2017 I was diagnosed with a giant acoustic neuroma resulting in a major surgery in early 2018. After a long recovery I am happy to be back at the easel and working hard with a new vigour, painting in full colour and exploring themes from travels abroad.
