Artist's statement

I paint abstracted landscapes in a variety of media, including graphite and charcoal, acrylics, oils and watercolour. I feel that a mixed media approach reflects the diverse elements found in the landscape. I use both canvas and paper, appreciating the different surfaces for the variety of end-products they stimulate.

I draw my inspiration from the landscape and daily plein air sketching. I try to let my paintings express the energy of a place, pulling together the colours and textures of the land and sky to convey feeling and our connection to the landscape.
