We as humans are emotional beings. The way we view the world is refracted through the prism of our own emotions.
Have you ever passed by a vista and stopped in wonder at its beauty?
How did you feel?
So often the beauty or ugliness of our surroundings are changed or distorted depending on the frame of mind of the viewer.
I try and capture that fleeting moment, whether it be desire, joy, sadness or indifference in my paintings.
Our landscapes are filled with vibrant colours, shapes and all kinds of texture, and all these are distilled and the raw essence of the scene extracted, and formed onto canvas.
