Inspired by the beauty of birds, landscape and the weather, my work explores light, space and the essence of the landscape. Colour is an important part of my practice, acting as an emotive, sensory response to the outer landscape around me, as well as the sense of landscape evoked within.  I work on location,  gathering drawings and making colour studies, which are used as inspiration for work made in the studio.  Using a variety of media to make my pieces, I create a response that is unique to me, often merging painting and drawing together.
