I am concerned with bringing the essence of the external – the beachscape and the landscape – inside. By ‘inside’, I mean not only within a home or workplace, but also within the human spirit or mind. My enquiry is to capture a moment of energy, a sense of peace and tranquility, or a mood, that has inspired me to paint or create.
I hope to encourage a sense of wellbeing in our fraught and hurried world – a transference from the past to the present. I love the energy that I feel when I am surrounded by a beautiful landscape, so I try to bring that same energy into my paintings.
I am a self taught, part-time artist, also working at Wrexham Glyndwr University.
