I am essentially a landscape painter based in Wirksworth, though much of my painting time is spent in wild isolated places to which I’m drawn. What I’m trying to achieve is a painting of the experience which within it might describe some of my own emotional reactions. Some paintings are completed onsite but many of them are brought back to the studio and reworked adding the extra dimension of memory. I work in many mediums although recently I have focused on oil paint.
My hope for the viewer is that they may recognise some of the emotional content within the work or that the paintings may evoke new experiences that might not be expected.
