My painting is about atmosphere, space and colour. Colour itself is of prime importance to me and I revel in its properties.
Having grown up in rural Cardiganshire, the countryside has shaped both me and my work. The forms and shadows on a country lane created by pure light add fire to my imagination.
The commonplace becomes mysterious, a stone unturned is written with meaning.
It is on my walks along lane and coast that images that will make their way into paintings form. I always feel the desire to be as inventive as I can with each work. Stories, poems, and folklore also play an important part in the process. Like a painting, each myth and legend takes on a new interpretation and comes alive in texture and brushstroke.
