My work is a response to my surroundings. The Sussex coastline with its port, groynes and beaches peppered with wind turbines constantly feed me with a wealth of inspiration. I continue to be captivated by the sky, its colour, texture and movement are my biggest stimulus.
Paintings evolve and emerge in response to the landscape. Each painting tells a story, capturing a moment in time, each marks, drip and smudge adding to the works narrative.
Drawing inspiration from my local environment, I work intuitively, building up and layering paint, often scraping back to expose hints or memories of previous marks. I enjoy the depth subtle washes of colour provide, adding to the history of the canvas and reflecting our ever-changing landscape.
