I like to create something you feel you can walk into or something you can touch and pick-up. I am fascinated by the volume and shape of objects and the way light falls across them. I choose or create compositions that have strong contrast, then develop the objects in my paintings in an almost sculptural way. Most of my work is based on a real scene, then by emphasising contrast and shape, the end result appears surreal. I also tend to use a limited number of colours, so there is more attention to the shape and depth of objects and the way light is behaving. I also like to create compositions that have contrast between different textures; sea-scapes contrast the rocks and the sea, landscapes and still-life show contrast between man-made and natural objects.
