THE BEACH pastel 6" x 24"
|welcome to my website
"I am not interested in pure representation; my work is about responses to the moods and atmospheres generated by the landscape, people or interior subjects.
I take an everyday scene and, through a subtle approach and focusing on light, colour and tone, I try to give the motif an elevated atmosphere. My subjects are often oriented around the mood of the sea, skies, harbours, ships and figures; I am constantly absorbing everything that is around me.
I am interested in new ideas and art forms. My philosophy is that the more I work the more I discover.
Drawing is essential as a tool of discovery; Skill and mastery of technique are also essential, but only as a vocabulary and a means towards an idea............I struggle to keep an open mind."
