I have been painting landscape since my days as a student at Goldsmith’s College in London, when I was painting the declining industrial landscape of my home in Newcastle, to the last twenty three years spent living in and exploring the unique rural landscape of the Outer Hebrides. Recent trips have taken me to new destinations, such as Iceland, Norway and the Arctic.
Light and form, my continuing obsession, is the most consistent theme that runs through my work, alongsidethe ongoing struggle to record the subtlety and beauty of the landscape. I love to experiment and play with different mediums and to create works with different approaches. My work I hope reflects upon the uniqueness of landscape in its own variety of method, material and imagery.
