The special light of the west coast, ever changing with the tide, time, weather and season is what interests me in my sketches and paintings.   The way that colours change - at one time the sea turquoise and yet within hours, or even minutes, it could be jade and lilac or deep indigo.

 

I work plein air, analysing and watching.   Some of this work becomes finished pieces in their own right, other work remains in sketchbooks - a resource to draw on for studio work on larger canvasses later.

 

I work in a wide variety of media - oil paints, acrylics, watercolours, pastels, mixed media, charcoal, coloured pencil and more.
