    My paintings are inspired by the landscape.

    There is a personal narrative within my work, using dreams, memories, photographs, drawings and prints.

    Fragments may be applied to the surface while painting, allowing elements of the story to emerge creating a new dialogue.

    Colour saturates my work to echo mood and content.
