“I’ve always lived on the coast and take a great deal of inspiration from my surroundings. Vast, dramatic skies are among the things I enjoy painting the most – with a fantasy influence, of course! I enjoy putting a great deal of narrative into my work, along with using colour to pull the viewer in.”
Gold en Cl iffs “This was originally a warm-up painting I did one morning. I liked the colour scheme so much I couldn’t help but take it to finish. I love that it both inspires a calming feeling as well as the sense of impending adventure just around the corner.”
Distant Stacks “A personal piece with a sense of adventure about it. I took great delight in the range of colours I could use and blend together in this image, without it becoming gaudy or overworked. I think the piece takes the viewer right into the canvas.”
Acid Vall ey “An experimental piece that leans towards my occasional urge to do something sci-fi. I wanted to establish a rather unsettling mood to the piece, as well as a sense of mystery as to what the circular structure in the distance was. To find this out would mean traversing the noxious environment, unfortunately!”
