I am essentially a Colourist.
I'm obsessed by how a tiny amount of one colour against others, can elevate a painting to another level. I don't paint any one place as it exists, as a literal interpretation, as this doesn't interest me. My work is abstracted.
My landscapes draw both from my surroundings on the South Coast of England and the visual vocabulary I have amassed in my brain. I begin by using colour intuitively, creating shapes, rhythms and marks within the canvas. I work in layers, adding and subtracting until a harmony is reached and the painting 'sings'. I sometimes add figurative elements but often also work completely abstract. I hope to engage the viewer on an emotional as well as a visual level.
