I started painting regularly in my mid 40s and being on a journey to settle into my style has offered personal insights, one being that I am not a detail person. I like big ideas, big skies, fells, seascapes. Without the distraction of trees, I find our exposure to our place in the universe, the natural world and our interaction with it takes on an almost spiritual quality.
I am moving towards a looser, spontaneous and instinctive style, putting my passion for all things environmental at the heart of my work. Using mixed media to observe and create a representation of a landscape, of time and place, executed in a more abstract, energetic way.
