Much of my work has been inspired by places of wild beauty that I have known for many years, such as Cumbria, Yorkshire and the Norfolk coast. I am particularly drawn towards the idea of nature reasserting itself on manís intrusions: wooden buildings, stone barns and discarded implements have always been a fascination.

There are also paintings of interiors as I am interested in the geometry of internal space. I like to create a sense of mystery by allowing the viewer a glimpse from one room to another, through a window or doorway, to imagine what lies beyond the confines of pictorial space. I occasionally add a solitary figure, preoccupied with something beyond our knowledge.
