“Two subjects have engaged me over the years, the landscape and the figure. I don’t maintain a single cohesive style but prefer to allow each piece to dictate my response.
The landscape paintings are worked from brief drawings, memories and something deeper, maybe inherited memories I can’t quite pin down. They are places I know well; this is an important part of the work, revisiting the familiar. At its core it’s about the joy of solitude and the comfort of permanence.”
