Painting & Drawing
Until quite recently, I have been rooted in the tradition of making art through a direct response to the North Devon landscape and seascapes. The work is initiated by what I see and how I feel about what I see. I search for the fundamental elements that define the spirit of the environment. Through the process of investigating the subject in paint, the content emerges and is then developed by my response to the marks and composition that are laid down on the canvas. I believe that a painting has its own destination, and that as a painter I embrace the journey between the painter and paint.
