Depending on the subject matter my interpretation can be figurative or abstract. Working from direct observation and sometimes photographs I make initial colour studies using collage and paint, elements of which are used for the final piece. Focussing on colour, shape and texture I like to use a variety of media to interpret different aspects of my investigations. Although the majority of my work is abstract and often intuitive I believe it is inspired by my natural surroundings be it weather or landscape often influencing my colour choices. I enjoy playing with colour and texture inviting the viewer to examine all areas of the painted surface. I am lucky to live on the North West coast of Scotland where the spectacular landscape changes frequently influenced by rapid changes in weather and light.
