“I'm strongly influenced by light, particularly low morning and evening, also the seasons particularly Autumn and Winter. I prefer to paint en plein air, I have been known to sit happily on a plastic bag in the snow to capture it’s beauty.
My pastels are impressionistic; I adore their immediacy and the chance to select a colour that is not always obvious. I use Unison, Ludwig and Henri Roché on sanded paper.
In recent years I have started to explore abstract landscape, primarily using watercolour. I love that I'm not always in control; trust watercolour to do what it does best. I use exclusively Danial Smith pigments for their depth of colour and nonfading qualities.
My influences are Edward Seago, Arthur Melville and Chien Chung Wei.”
