“I am passionate about colour. I live surrounded by land, sea and sky. My work evolves through a struggle to capture the infinite, ephemeral harmonies of light and form, either through direct landscape studies (I work much outside) or through more reflective, philosophical and abstract paintings. Or maybe just playing with colour, for fun.”
