My paintings are inspired by nature, by the Norfolk and Suffolk coast and the countryside that surrounds me.
Semi-abstracted in form, I am not interested in the facts and details but aim to capture mood, feeling and the spirit of a place often reflecting the inner landscapes of the mind.  I often paint without brushes and have chosen in all my recent works to paint with my hands and fingers feeling the paint on the canvas, layers often build becoming ambiguous and alive.   
I find painting an intuitive process: a painting is never completed until I feel a sense that the work has developed a spirit of its own.
