Artist's Statement

Having always kept sketchbooks which contain observations of things which catch the eye that spark an interest which can become the basis of a painting and also drawing upon memory and imagination, my work is about evoking the essence of an atmosphere through the use of colour and shape and all the elements and stresses that go into making it.
