" Working in oil on canvas or board
my early works were small, carefully composed and painted directly
from life. I used thinned oil paint and small brushes.
From 2000-2007, still depicting the natural world my paintings
were larger. I used larger brushes, thicker paint and a palette
Since 2007 although still entranced by the light and colour
of the natural world and animate and inanimate objects I am
moving away from painting directly from life. I now use memory
and choice so that my paintings can be judged for themselves
rather than studies of nature."
