I paint the sense of place. I paint intuitively. I witness theater in the skies every day as I walk my dog: clouds rolling in from the Atlantic wild and heavy. The sea gate-crashing our shores and the sun kissing rain or dripping gold over fields.
Each season offers a new treat: icy silence on a Winter's morning, the sun raking across Spring's gentle murmurs then Summer's haze, the prelude to Autumn's dying wake.
When I paint I try to capture the energy I feel in nature. I use clear colours, a simple palette and I search for hues to describe what I see in my mind. I use bold marks and weave elements of a story together on my canvas. Sometimes elements can be from different times, different seasons, different places and they share the story of my painting. Spring with Summer, ripe corn with Spring's froth.
I paint intuitively. I paint the sense of place.
