"I want to connect with the landscape when I paint. I try to keep a balance between representational line and instinctual marks, allowing the piece to change and evolve freely, My paintings are as much about how I am feeling as what my eyes are seeing. All of my work is made in situ. I paint on board, canvas and watercolour paper. By using acrylics, pastels and watercolours and not thinking too much, I hope to retain the looseness and freshness of a quick sketch! North Cornwall's coastline fascinates me. I feel like I'm looking right down the country's fringe, its rugged skin! To me, it is a place where everything happens and the elements play. The power and energy created by the coast and the weather is special. It makes me feel alive, and when I paint I feel part of it!"
