Statement

Colour has always played a fundamental role in my painting. The importance of colour was impressed on me at an early stage, by the British artist Patrick Heron. My paintings explore and are specific to, the theme of ‘place and time’. The work is descriptive in essence, natural shape and form taken from the world at large. Ideas for paintings begin with preliminary studies ‘in situ’, working directly from primary sources. Initial ideas are translated into larger scale paintings, working on paper or canvas. The compositional elements that are employed within each painting aim to capture a spirit of immediacy and simplicity.
