ARTIST STATEMENT

 

The inspiration for my art is the ever-changing patterns of light and colour in nature, especially the wild haunting beauty of West Coast landscapes.

Watercolours reflect the spontaneity and fluidity of my subject matter and help capture the energy of a moment and excite the imagination. Working 'plein air' keeps my images fresh.
