Statement. I make direct drawing responses to landscape employing a range of media and techniques; this work feeds the imagination, rouses emotions and helps to provide studio paintings, which have lives of their own, independent of the subject and with relationships of line, pattern and structure emerging from the act of looking. Each work is an adventure into the unknown and an expression of the total experience involved.
