"The landscape features greatly in my work and continues to be a source of inspiration for me. In my earlier pastel pictures I used the forms and shapes of the land as a starting point to create more abstract interpretation.
I relocated to Lancshire in 2009 and more recently settled in the village of Sabden. This change of environment has affected my mosst recent work. Living in the shadow of Pendle Hill, a landmark that I have known all my life is hard to ignore. I do not try to recreate a scene or defined image of the landscape, rather use the elements of what I see to create an amalgamation or interpretation."
