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 memories in composition or atmosphere, it can be instant and unexpected. In some sense I document the times we live in and how I relate to events. 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 or colours. Norwich
