For me the process of painting is a journey where I allow nature to be my guide. Marks, colour and forms are applied instinctively according to a location or an idea I have in mind. I try to disengage myself from any preconceptions of how I want the final image to look. It’s all about the process, one where there is no fixed plan. One mark informs the next. My only real aim is to imbue the painting with the essence of a place, or a feeling one gets when immersed in the wonders of nature.
