'Working in mixed media, I start my work on location looking for interesting light and compositions and then take all the information and ideas back to my studio and work from the drawings to create the finished paintings. The British coastline and countryside are my inspirationI try to capture the mood of a scene, often through weather or light and its affects on the surroundings.
I often visit the same place more than once , but each time the scene is changed by the light, weather, flora and seasons.
I use layers of paint and other materials to create a heavy texture to the work making the painting stand off the canvas.' SL
