Drawing and painting out in the landscape are an essential part of my work, using a sketchbook to record and gather information of an experience and sensation of a particular location …places I have walked or visited.. which have inspired me.

I am particularly drawn to the sea and the rugged coastlines of the Atlantic. The challenge of capturing the colour, the constantly changing mood and power of these rough seas, the effect of weather which changes from moment to moment, the wildness and drama in each wave are something I am continually striving to create within my paintings.
