‘Although my Paintings and Prints are all based upon the general theme of landscape they are not concerned with natural representation, or location, or even specific moments in time. I am interested in how form and colour, and markmaking can suggest the idea, and the experience of landscape not in imitation, but rather by evocation. I have tried to create within my pictures, a composition and structure that has a multiplicity of associations’.
