Observation is of prime importance to my work. My paintings develop out of my drawings. There is a constant considered figurative / abstract interplay, a desire to find the essence of my motif whether the subject is an industrial interior or single flower.
Thumbnail sketches that develop into small paintings, mixed media, ink and pastel studies. This starts the creative charge. A finished large painting can take up to five years to make but then be re-painted and finished in an hour. My paintings are made on location, an emotional, visceral response, ideas of light and tension that are then fused together in the studio to make a whole.
