The works are all painted in oil, from direct observation.
Increasingly the main focus is landscape, but the interest is metaphorical. The
challenge is to find underlying structure and order in subjects that are often
nebulous or chaotic. There is a dominant
pre-occupation with complex organic forms viewed either in the context of their
natural habitat or in the studio .The paintings are layered up over a period of
weeks and frequently exposed to the vagaries of the weather!
