Provoked by the ever changing light, colours and dynamics of life I have discovered a boundless freedom of expression within oil painting. Life is so busy everyday, that sometimes I forget to stop and enjoy the abundance of nature and light . Painting in oil gives me the opportunity to do just that, it stops time and space for me.
The feeling I get, while stumbling around a blustery hillside , the moment I glimpse wildlife or the moment when I decide to stop and breathe, this is where I find inspiration. When all things become different colours from one moment to the next, as the clouds roll by and the sun arcs before retiring: It is then that I know what I am going to paint.
