‘My inspiration has long been environments, both external and internal. There is an interaction between the two that is of constant interest to me. I spend my time walking, photographing and sketching, absorbing my place in the landscape. No light, weather, texture, wind, feeling, mood or day is ever the same. I then return to the studio. I try to capture the feeling and atmosphere as well as the physical detail. The aim is to distil the occasion into the work without marks that are extraneous or unnecessary.’
