    Artist Statement

    I work to my emotive response to landscapes, which are of poignant memories of places and experiences. I use colour to express an inner narrative by concentrating on recessive colours and experimenting with limited palettes while striving to retain equilibrium. I like to paint quickly at first capturing the energy of an idea and then to add detail until I resolve the painting, following the painting's development and letting go of the original idea. I am a member of The Arborealists, a group of 60 artists who work around the subject of the tree and exhibit regularly with them around the UK and Europe. My previous experience as a gallery manager has lead to my involvement with art fairs and exhibitions as a technician and event organiser.
