My art is inspired by natural places with huge skies and distant horizons.
I capture my emotional response to these precious, mysterious and amazing places by painting them. By immersing myself in nature and the elements, I fill up my heart. Then I pour it out again onto the canvas.
Back in the studio, I am influenced by artists such as Kurt Jackson, Franz Marc and Turner. I listen to music as I paint, and often use song titles or lyrics to title my paintings.
Oil paints are my preferred medium. Oils are rich, velvety and simply gorgeous. I use palette knives to spread the paint like butter, later building on the undercoat with various techniques to create vibrant and textured impressionistic paintings.
