Biography

My artwork
My mission in painting is to try to simplify and get rid of unnecessary detail and find the essence of what I see.
 
Making a body of work.
A number of paintings come from one sketch and some photographs. I view collecting information for paintings as a visual diary. If I can be accurate enough in describing what I see in both \'scribbles\' and words, then long after the day I can recall what I saw, how I felt and the impact that what I saw had on me. A photograph can give me the position of a tree and its structure, but it is no substitute for on the spot sketches.

When I am painting wild sea paintings I do not want a photographic record, but to catch the essence, the movement, the splash, drip and roar of the waves on the shore or over rocks.
