My work is influenced by my rural surroundings, its patterns, shapes, colours and fall of light. Colour is my main inspiration, whether it be subtle or otherwise. I usually use acrylics and do not plan a painting, but work intuitively, allowing the image to emerge and develop. I build up layers of paint, scratching through to colours underneath (oil pastel). This sgraffito technique is now an important part of my painting process.
I mainly paint small abstract landscapes, but also produce more spiritual work in which I try to convey a sense of peace and calm.
