My work is about the natural world.  Whether landscape, seascape or figurative, at the start of a new piece, I try not to have expectations about the finished painting.  There are many intuitive decisions along the way and the process, while frustrating at times, is very intriguing to me.  Sometimes, I feel as though I am doing battle with the painting, and as I search for a resolution, layers of paint build up.  Through this process, the work acquires a ‘history’ that appeals to me.
