Painting has been a constant and developing passion in which I am increasingly absorbed. Inspiration still comes from trips to the Islands around Scotland as well as further afield in Italy and Australia and closer to home in the more gentle rural landscape of the fields and hills around my studio here in Angus.
Landscape continues to be the stimulus for much of my painting. Over time the work has become more abstracted and I work freely with the paint to express the mood and atmosphere of time and place.
Working on a subject, I may produce series of paintings refining each attempt as in the drafting of a poem.
