I build small wood panels, sometimes faced with copper, or linen supports for my oil paintings. The scale intensifies of the process, both of creating and observing, bringing an intimacy which is perhaps partly voyeuristic. And I employ traditional oil painting techniques, combining opaque, dry brush and glazes.The spontaneity of plein air and life drawing makes up a valuable part of my work, pursuing both the seductive rhythm and flow of line and fleeting light. Daily drawing takes me healthily out of the studio. I am particularly drawn to Dutch genre painting and American Realism. Most recently, I have been inspired by the work of Andrew Wyeth.
