“I started working seriously in watercolours in 2009 after recovering from major eye surgery. I had 9 weeks of recovery time often spending hours each day squinting and sketching waiting for my vision to return. Not to waste any time, I started painting as soon as possible -a way of celebrating the return of my sight
Basically I see myself as a non regional landscape watercolourist. I use a collective visual approach to image creation. Images are generated from many sources -my travels, my site sketches, my photos, my memories. A sense of place, light quality and weather often dominate my inspirations. Always drawn to strong motifs, I work to capture a moment that pulls the viewer into my experience."
