Relationships with nature and place have aways been at the root of my work. Growing up in North Wales, the energy and forms of landscape are deeply imprinted and come instinctively when I paint. I’m inspired by the physical ‘bodies’ of nature, the sense of movement and entanglement, the play of light and shade, stillness and energy.
I work from visual memory and there is a sense of the merging of inner and outer landscapes as the embodied experience and ‘feeling’ of landscape - colour, light, matter and memory - is given form. Painting becomes a process of translation and connection - exploring the language of landscape and the reciprocal nature of our encounters with place.
