'Painting is my primary connection and exploration of the outside world.
These personal versions are referenced through emotions, reactions, memories; interior landscapes made visible. I seek a dialogue of land and sky, light and line.'
Paintings on canvas and on paper are primarily acrylic paint, and a variety of media; watercolour, gouache, pastel, chalks, coloured pencil, graphite and metallics.
