Artist's statement:

My work is first and foremost about colour: its spatial, emotive and visual qualities. I use the landscape as both the vehicle and inspiration for my exploration of colour. I am endlessly fascinated by the colour in the glint and flicker of light through trees, sunlight on shingles, evening sunsets, fairgrounds, harbours, etc. My paintings try to capture the moment and evoke something of my sense of excitement and wonder at these phenomena.

The artist's work is mainly in watercolour with white gouche. Using not only brushes, some very large, but also paint scrapers of all kinds and sizes. Whereas for many years I worked directly from nature, over the past ten years I have found that I prefer working in the studio from drawings, colour sketches and photographs done on the spot, as I like to reduce the view to the essential elements that recreate my initial reaction.
