"I'm visually compelled by various forms of shape, value, pattern, etc. Through the process of painting, I gain new and deeper insight into my subject and its surroundings as these elements combine and communicate."

“My paintings have immediate visual impact. The canvases read well from a distance; then close up they dissolve into a series of pastel-strokes clearly and confidently rendered. Knowledge and observation are essential elements of my working practice and to achieve this I spend a large proportion of my time painting on location – on both small and large canvases.”
