Oil Paintings 

My paintings are translations of my experience of being in and in relationship to the landscape - sensory responses to colour, matter, light and memory. 

I grew up in a wild, beautiful part of North Wales. The forms and energy of that landscape are deeply imprinted and come instinctively when I paint. I'm interested in the idea of the language of landscape and the reciprocal nature of the encounter with place.

In Welsh the word 'Hiraeth' captures something of that sense of kinship, connection with and longing for place and belonging.

I work on wood, paper, perspex and canvas - each material brings a different quality to the painting.

I write more about resonance and vibrant matter in
'At the Sweet Shop'.

 

 

"We experience the sensuous world only by rendering ourselves vulnerable to that world. Sensory perception is this ongoing interweavement: the terrain enters into us only to the extent that we allow ourselves to be taken up within that terrain.......
