Overview

‘I've been passionate in the mark-making expressed in these new pieces. Having spent time walking, hugging the cliffs and soaking in the atmosphere and the energy of this special place – Cornwall. Weather and light take centre stage but it's the energy of the sea and the weather which I most wanted to portray in these paintings.

 

‘A painting usually begins from a memory of the place or a moment. Sometimes just looking at the sky can trigger an idea or a feeling I want to record in paint. The work comes very much from within.

 

‘I don't usually work from sketches - just paint straight onto the canvas using my own photos for reference, working fast, using large brushes, rags and sometimes fingers to push the paint around until it forms a response that I'm after. The result is usually a painting full of complex layering, areas built up inimpasto combined with thin, glazed areas. Texture and mark making are an important part of my work.’
