Colour is my passion. I usually try to portray what I see around me, in the landscapes, seascapes and skyscapes, of this beautiful part of this country. Living in Devon, I am lucky that I only have to walk a mile or so to get to water. There are several rivers nearby and the local marshes and estuary often provide the inspiration and motivation for my work. I am drawn to the abstractions in nature and they play a large part in my work, sometimes without my being conscious of their presence until nearing completion of the piece.
