I paint landscapes in acrylic and oils. In my paintings I try to interpret the mood, structure and feel of the landscape. My subjects are places I have visited where I have been moved by walking in them, or I use photographs of places I have never been to but which make an impact on me visually and compel me to paint them.
I show the landscapes I paint through the patterning of their contours, the rhythms of colour and light so that they offer the viewer a new experience of what the landscape can be. They are abstracted from the ‘real’ world, without being abstract. And to paint like that, I rely on my memory of the place…..who I was with, the time of year, how I felt being there….to all contribute to my expression of place and go beyond what can’t be immediately seen.
