"I am not interested in pure representation; my work is about responses to the moods and atmospheres
generated by landscape, still life or interior. I take an everyday scene and, through a subtle approach
and through 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."
