“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!”
