My paintings are born from an emotional response to places I visit and views that I witness in my day to day life. Outwardly, they relate to different light and colour in the landscape. I then relate these to inward feelings and memories and things which are currently going on in my life. Sometimes the history of a place and a feeling about a place will have an effect on my paintings. All of them are about beauty in the landscape and moments where this beauty affects us. This in turn correlates with specific events and happenings in my life.
