Imaginary landscapes are recalled through the sieve of memory rather than through directly observational or reproductive strategies. Most forms are suggested rather than dictated. The work is built up in many layers with transparent and opaque paint, scratching through the wet surface, removing and adding as the image emerges.
This is an ‘Emotional Landscape’, more to do with how it feels to be in an environment rather than the topographical details.
A sense of hope is vital in my work, which frequently references a journey either physical or metaphorical.
