"The landscape is my starting point, not as a picturesque or static view, but as a space travelled through and experienced often on the edges of the urban and rural. It is a source of man made and natural structures, surfaces
and colour from which my reductive personal responses develop. I am inspired by distant horizons, the silhouettes of trees and rooftops contrasting expanses of sky interrupted by power lines, and by the architectural forms of vernacular buildings."
