 "The subjects I paint (usually in oil) are varied, although my main subject area is landscape and seascape from my studio in the Cotswolds or on location. When painting I enjoy the feel of using palette knife in order to convey the beauty I see in nature with thick colour. I always develop a piece by thinking long and hard about the emotive, what it is that I feel I want to share. When the work goes well I like to think it will go to a good home - that someone will enjoy that reaction whenever they look at it."
