My work is deeply connected with a sense of place. The locations I choose and the focus of my attention are highly selective, personal and resonant of individual landscape features, associated thoughts, emotions and reflections. Central to my practice is the use of pure colour which I make from pigment. I select a limited palette and through the impact of both colour and surface I aim to capture the mood and sensation of an ever changing landscape.

These paintings, a continuing series; are my response to particular landscape features that make reference to transition and the consequences of perpetual flux, and which have had a profound effect on me whilst walking through coastal and tidal areas.
