I became inspired by artist's such as David Jones and Cecil Collins I saw mystical and spiritual life in their paintings of the landscape. I also explored the work of Cezanne who's watercolor landscapes are full of light and meaning.
Wildlife and the rural landscape have inspired my work since my days as a student and a sense of wonder at nature and the joy of drawing and painting outside continues to move me. The images that I make are always rooted in something that I have seen, a pattern in the weather, the rolling moorland grass, a group of Exmoor ponies, I hope to depict these sights with a freshness and spirit that I experience being in nature.
