51 Through my paintings I aim to express sensory feelings of being in a landscape. Of particular inspiration is the natural world. Its cycles, ebbs and flows and rhythms provide stimulation which filter down through me and into my work. Whether it be a turbulent sea or serene forest it is the experience of it and interactions with it which I aim to translate into paint. My work is an emotional response to natural environments; their colours, textures, smells and sounds. My work communicates a sense of vastness of the world around me yet focuses on small moments.
