“I am first and foremost a colourist and yet it took me some time to fully realise this.  My early professional years were spent in exploring aspects of printmaking, particularly etching. These etchings depict the coastline and mountains of North Wales which I have known all my life.  In this medium I was able to concentrate on the patterns and rhythms inherent in the landscape and the subtle tonal changes wrought by light and weather.

 

In the late eighties I travelled extensively in Europe and North Africa where the effects of strong sunlight on the desert landscape and the rich colour, texture and patterns found in the architecture, tiles and textiles made a lasting impression.  This experience led me to painting in oils and mixed media."

 

Influences
