'I find the approaching gloom of night a visually exciting time; the mutability of light, and inevitable loss that brings on an urgency and serves to heighten all of the senses. The fleeting moment when our perception of colour is almost lost, but the darker forms in the landscape take on a precise tonal weight, is an ongoing area of interest for me.
'Whilst founded on observation of the natural world, my paintings are personal meditations on the significance of my relationship with Nature and represent an ongoing investigation about what meaning still resides in our relationship with landscape.'
