I create evocative, contemporary, semi abstract landscape paintings in watercolour, acrylic and oil on board, canvas and paper.
My work is inspired by the landscape around me, specifically the North Devon coastline with its big seas and skies, distant shorelines and rolling hills.
When I paint, I am seeking to capture the feelings, the emotion within the moment; the feeling of being within the landscape, of belonging. When I walk along the cliff path, stand by the sea, watch the sunlight hitting the waves, or the moment of calm once the sun has dipped beyond the horizon and the sky becomes alight with colour I am inspired to recreate that in art.
I am seeking to evoke the same spiritual connection I get when I am in an amazing landscape. The landscape is my source of nourishment, my therapy, my spiritual enrichment.
