Artist's Statement
 

I have always been fascinated by the outdoors and the peaceful calm that surrounds the subjects occupying the landscape. The textures, shapes ,and intense colours continue to dazzle the human eye. My challenge has been to capture the calm of the north, the majesty of mountains and the reflection of the sky, water and trees. When I started to paint, over eleven years ago, I felt then and still do, that the medium of oil best captures the look I am seeking. Sometimes I am inspired by a landscape photo but my goal is to paint the true feeling of a landscape instead of an imitation which lacks feeling.

I hope that people see, in my work,the enjoyment I get from doing it. It's really a joy to express myself through painting the way I see it in our marvellous world.
