"I am drawn to open panoramic vistas where the drama of approaching weather on landscape is played out. Usually I start my paintings out on location sketching and painting directly from the scene. This makes for works that are spontaneous, full of energy and depth. I seek to convey the symbiotic relationship between the elements of weather, land and the interplay of the hidden, then revealed scene.
Using a variety of media (watercolours, inks, graphite pencils and pastel on paper), I convey my sense of journeying through the landscape and my feeling of being part of the experience. I express my intuitive response to the energy and enfolding drama of the landscape, capturing a feeling of light, movement and wildness. In my work, I seek to evoke a glimpse, a moment in time and the sense of mood of the land and place."
