“I am inspired by light and atmosphere and try to capture these elements in my work”

In my acrylic paintings, I use colour relationships, value, patterning and substantial texture to create the impression of depth and light and to bring about the beauty and unusual effects of natural forms.  My subject matter varies and is not as important to me as the mood or concept that I want to portray.



 

Recent paintings in my "HIGHLAND SERIES" have been created from the images of our recent journey to Northern Scotland and my inspiration from the country's light and vast landscape.


In watercolour, the media’s natural transparency and fluidity allows me to highlight these features.  Typically, I use 'negative' painting in my backgrounds to create depth and to emphasize the light.


In both watercolour and acrylic, I work to simplify my ideas, allowing and encouraging the viewer to relate to their own perceptions, emotions and individual experiences.


Techniques change, different subjects inspire and new media  will be used.  My work continues to evolve.
