I am a landscape painter. It is my love of place that makes me want to capture it in a painting. It can be a wild Scottish landscape or a wet glistening city street but in both cases I will try to express the effect the subject has on my emotions. This may mean that colours are enhanced but the essence of the place as I see it is captured.
I love to share my work with other people and I hope they too get an emotional reaction from it. Artfinder is a fantastic way of reaching a wide audience.
I paint in both watercolours and oils, using the former painted en plein air as preparatory material for oil paintings in the studio.
