For me inspiration comes from confrontation with nature which
demands a response; a sunset, a heavy shower, powdered snow,
sunrise over a loch, any or all of these elements might dictate
the form that the response will take. I contemplate the landscape
with amazement as it changes hourly, yet remains fundamentally
the same. This is a concept I love to explore in my paintings
- a blazing sunset reflected in a calm sea carries the implication
of impending darkness, while heavy clouds in an overcast sky
might predict an imminent storm...
I have painted since childhood, so I have a long history of
creative influences; the two most lasting however have been
Fred Cuming RA and Ken Howard RA.
