Artistic Approach

My work has evolved over the past seven years, culminating in an approach to painting which involves movement and gesture. I attempt to convey the light reflecting, the lightness of leaves, the darkness of the forest, the sound of water.

I am influenced by many years of living in the mountains and on the water’s edge. My work is semi representational with preparation involving photography, sketching on site in pencil or watercolour, working out a value approach, and finally laying paint on canvas or paper.

With oils, I work in the impasto style allowing the brushstrokes to show and creating movement within the painting with mark making.

I create my art to convey a message of peace, far away from the reality of our ever-changing society. I wish to bring nature inward and to encourage the viewer to contemplate and dream.
