Artists Statement

I work from figurative themes, which may develop into abstraction. I am interested in the landscape and shorelines of places where I have lived and places I have visited. In my work I try to capture the atmosphere and feelings generated in me by those places, through my use of colour and texture. My work is executed in a variety of media, including, watercolour, acrylic, pastel and oils.
