The process of painting is very rewarding to me.
It provides the means to challenge myself to learn and grow
as well as the freedom to explore, whether it be technical concepts
about paint or how I see and interpret the world around me.
These are fundamental things to finding happiness
and I find them in making art.
In recent years my focus has been on plein air painting
providing the challenge of observing light, colour and value from life,
while also working within a time restraint has helped me focus on the
essentials of painting.
My current fascination is rendering light and atmosphere
while using a limited colour palette.
