The work I create, which is in abstract form, is often derived from either a still life, floral or landscape theme. Colours, textures and form inspire me to create highly personal, unique works of art, often based on situations and experiences from daily observations. 

Inspiration is generally drawn from the earthy textural tones of the peak district, and the bright light of St Ives, Cornwall.

My work takes days often weeks to complete. Layers of paint, give history and meaning to the painting…. creating clarity, texture, tone and movement in its conclusion. 

Although simple in appearance and pleasing on the eye, the art is complex and carefully crafted … a Pandora’s box of images, texture & colour open to thought, contemplation and above all to the enquiring mind, interpretation.

This is in Harvey in Western Australia. The sun had set behind me, leaving everything in deep shade. But the sunlight was still hitting the bank of the trees high up in the distance, lighting up to such a brilliant orange that they look for all the world like a far-off bush fire. I did all the foreground, sketched in the bright orange background and then began to put in the mass of branches at the top. Then I started to think about what my old teacher and mentor Hayward Veal told me. He'd suggested that instead of trying to paint trees and branches on top of the sky colour, you paint everything dark, then put the sky and the spaces in between to reveal the trees and branches. I followed his advice and it worked.

I Illustrated the side of a grand piano for DeMontfort Fine Art, with a long complex scene partly made up from my head, partly inspired by photos of country scenes from Northern New South Wales. These photographs showed a very green landscape, but I had in mind a parched, dry scene mainly composed of reds and oranges. When I had finished it, I really loved it so much that I immediately coated a long canvas with orange paint so I could have the pleasure again of painting a similar scene, but in a more right-angled oblong shape. As I eventually got around to working on it, the excitement of painting the scene on the piano was long months away, but as soon as I started, the thrill was there again. I hadn't realised that the piano was much longer than my canvas, and so couldn't duplicate the piano work of art. It was of necessity, shorter, but I think, exactly as much fun to paint. I don't think it would have worked as well had I made all the paddocks green instead of orangey-red.
