I work with thick strokes of paint applied with a palette knife creating simple shapes in attempt to highlight the flashes of colour and other defining details that stood out to me. I work quite quickly and my marks are spontaneous and impulsive, I embrace happy accidents and enjoy the life that can be seen in a painting when the artist works instinctively. Inspiration comes to me while exploring the British landscape, sourcing colours and shapes that give me a sense of place. I’m fascinated by the relationship between the natural and man-made lines and forms in the landscape and how the two come together to create a harmonious aesthetic. I find myself drawn to the patterns of trees and hedgerows or structures of walls and paths that define the shapes in our landscape.
