“As a figurative painter, I am involved in the making of images – images which are concerned with atmosphere – of coast, sea, sky and weather – and the impressions that they leave.
Drawing from life plays an important part in my practice – working from sketches, memory and intuition, the initial image becomes secondary to the paint and the surface. It is about the push and drag of the paint, building the surface to a point where I have arrived close to the essence of my first vision.”
