I paint in oils, acrylics and watercolour, and draw in graphite, ink and pastel, enjoying the contest between reality and imagination: often starting a painting unsure of its ultimate destination. I draw upon a background in science, and from living in Kenya and Scotland before London.
There is great pleasure in landscape and I am inspired by local places and those visited while walking here and abroad. I paint on location, but generally prefer a studio using sketches and photographs, and memory, to complete the work. Recently I have been using a restricted pallet and many works are in monochrome or black and white, which I find is fascinating for developing mood.
