I am passionate about lansdscape painting. I am particularly keen to portray those places I know well; my work has mostly centred around the landscape in which I grew up, and now live. Oil and acrylic are my preferred mediums, as both of these mediums allow me the opportunity to lay down expressive marks on the canvas. Throughout my work I attempt to capture the mood of the landscape with my brushstrokes and am always trying to pay close attention to how the light reflects off the scene in front of me. Within the confines of landscape painting I always try to experiment with bold brush strokes, different gel mediums and even scratching the surface of the painting at times to achieve the desired effect; I will try anything to help me convey my feelings about a scene.
