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. A painting evolves on it’s own accord, where one mark informs the next. My only real aim is to imbue the painting with the essence of a place, or the feeling one gets when immersed in the wonders of nature.
