“Our pace of life dictates that we observe our world through a veil, failing to pause and enjoy the depth and colour of our experiences. In producing these drawings and paintings it was my intention to experience each location as deeply as possible; in all moods and conditions, at different times of day and season. I find that completing the work on location expresses the passing moments with rawness; there are few artistic ‘tricks’, just an honest response to what I see and feel.”
