My subject matter is mainly drawn from surrounding landscape, seascape and coastal edges. Colours, textures and changing weather patterns provide the mood and atmospheres. Sketch books and visual contact are vital. As I work in printmaking, painting, both oil and watercolours, then choices have to be made.
The most recent event influencing both painting and printmaking was sailing the Norwegian coast from Kirkenes to Bergen in 2012.
The Rendezvous Gallery Residency on Lewis proved extremely rewarding.
