I am drawn to locations which exert historic and mythic presence.
I explore the lyrical narrative of natural sites and strong bold shapes of castles,churches, old townships and harbours.
I do this through distortion of perspective, invention and editing, aiming to capture an essence of the structure or place.
Colour is used in an emotive way to heighten the sense of mood.I enjoy applying each layer upon layer of paint. Slowly I realise a unity of statement as the image emerges, revealing the subjects unique sense of place.
