Images from nature, whether plants, flowers, leaves, trees or landscapes inspire the majority of my artworks. When I’m out every morning walking the dog, I find new visual delights to inform my day’s work. I’ll return to the studio with a cup of tea, have a tidy up and sort through partially-completed pieces and decide how to progress with the day’s work. I may use oil or acrylic paint or watercolours or drawing mediums - pencil, charcoal, pastel or ink - or printmaking methods such as Linocut or collagraph. Some work is built up from a variety of mediums often employing collage techniques. In the studio I have a large collection of art books for inspiration, my favourite artists being Eric Ravillious and Samuel Palmer.
My favourite poem is by John Clare 1793 - 1864 and includes the lines:
Rich music breathes in Summer's every sound;
And in her harmony of varied greens...
Much beauty intervenes,
Filling with harmony the ear and eye;
While o'er the mingling scenes
Far spreads the laughing sky.
