Inspired by my immediate surroundings, memories and current affairs I explore recessive colour to create mood and atmosphere within landscapes. I sometimes work from photos of the TV screen that relate to my own experience, it can be instant and unexpected. I work from photos and drawings and there is a point when the painting takes over and I go with what’s happening on the surface discarding the source material. Nature is the only running theme in my paintings as I work in a non formulaic way generally not repeating images but maybe repeating ideas using a tight four colour palette. Norwich
