Artist Statement

 Landscape is the context in which my expression occurs. Locality consists of spaces in which we are drawn outside ourselves, and in which the erosion of our lives takes place. Impressions of the landscape capture the essence of a space and time, emotional, thoughtful, and personal, and a basis for a visual vocabulary that is more universal, therefore the painting is an experience rather than a view and has its own internal visual logic so it can function as an artwork .  I describe my work as influenced by inner factors, intuitive, related to memories, senses, emotions. Time found in space stilled. The landscape as a reflection of my own condition. To quote Camille Souter: ‘Painting has gathered time into its being, almost as if it is a conversation.’
