Biography

I am being more and more driven to work toward abstraction as I understand this form of work, but it so varies on my mood, I can walk across my local landscape on a glorious day whatever the season, and come home inspired to paint either representationally or abstractly

inspiration

My inspiration is landscape , even if it it just the endless layering within it, be it a view through the undergrowth, or the rhythm within, or just to have that feeling of endless space, be that on top of the canvas between the paint, colours and marks or depth of texture within the piece. This relates either with my abstract work and also the more representational pieces

medium

Basically I paint with acrylic paint, but include some collage, inks, oil pastel, crayons, and so many different tools, palette knives, plastic tools, hands you name it I'll try it!
