I create abstract landscapes in mixed medias including acrylic, oil, and pastel on board and canvas. I also create reliefs – carving into sheets of plaster. All of my work takes on a sculptural form echoing the layers of the landscape around us. Working in mixed media, I often layer card and use impasto techniques to create energy and impact. I avoid realism opting to us colour to communicate the motion of nature.
I draw inspiration from a number of genres such as religious iconoclasm and early Celtic carving. I want the viewer to be able to interpret their own message. I’m profoundly influenced by the land and our place within in it. It’s a journey that’s never ending. Click here to find out details of current and planned exhibitions.
