Artist Statement

I am inspired by the land and sea, and both real and imagined landscapes are the subject of much of my work. I love to capture light from stormy or threatening skies, but I also love the feel of the light after the storm has passed.
My work is often about layers, both in technique and in subject matter. I like to see my paintings evolve as I work on them, as do the landscapes they represent.
Although I work mainly in oils and acrylic, I love textures and use a variety of materials to achieve paintings that in some cases are almost sculptural. I work straight on the canvas and try not to plan a painting in too much detail. This gives my work an impulsive quality, and it is this spontaneous aspect that attracted me to print.
I produce small edition or unique original prints. I love the fact that however much you prepare a print, the result is always something unplanned and better than imagined. My monoprints are all, by their nature, unique. My etchings tend to have aspects that make each print, in what I always keep as small editions, different from the one before.
