There are places that I connect to and feel part of. A hill, river, wood or a singular tree, a tump, lake or Iron Age fort are some of the magical presences that hold me to the land. I sketch out of doors and breath a direct experience with Nature and all that comes freely as an inspirational tonic in an otherwise busy world. I carry home inwardly the soul connection made between the inner and outer world, via my senses in a visceral way and then after some time I usually paint, through improvisation, a place or an experience I have had. Some of my work is released or metamorphosed into another painting as I go with the flow of transforming a picture...maybe I do not know when to stop but I enjoy creating dynamic changes which in turn reflect the land and the feelings I have when I am in Nature.
