Artist statement

Pursuing my passion for landscape painting out doors and continuing to explore our beautiful country. I spend time and connect to place - the country / landscape, people and elements. I then try to distil the essence of this experience with my personal response into a painterly contemporary expression through my painting.

Onsite “Plein Air” I work quickly to capture an immediate response & energy using Gouache, Charcoal and Pastel. Often completing many sketch versions at each location.

My studio work in Oils or Acrylic is a culmination of the gathered source material, experiences and memory – and has been described as “cross over” contemporary landscape work.
