I walk Scottish and Northern English landscapes, with camera and notebook. Images resonate. New work planned. Each painting as it develops may impact others in the series – forms and colours adapt. It is a slow process. And then, they are finished and I move on.
Abstracted paintings are a result of exploring the interplay between what is seen and what is felt about the landscape, combining recognisable landforms with an instinctive sense of colour and form.
Series of works build up gradually through layers of paint, to create a balance from which individual paintings emerge
My working studio has been extended into a tiny byre. The light has been transformed. Using traditional materials, I work on tables, standing to paint. Laptop and printer sit on a desk nearby. Frameworks, cards and cushions too : all are planned here.
