My Art Inspiration

Art is an expression of my passion for the great outdoors and nature. My camera is full of images of the beautiful diverse countryside and coast with its crashing waves, rock pools and sand. Theses  images provide me with visual inspiration, but just as importantly the memory of the feeling and emotion I experienced. Translation of all of this into a piece of art work is what is important to me and hopefully reflects in the final painting.
I use a variety of media, including oil and mixed media but my favoured medium is acrylic. Its qualities allow the building up of layers, thick opaque layers, translucent washes, as well as the addition of a texture medium including gesso and sand to add depth and interest to my painting.
