Primarily about light whether it be natural or artificial, my subject matter mainly concerns our environment, both urban and rural as affected by seasonal changes.
The restrictions over the last few years have meant concentrating even more on my immediate, sometimes more intimate surroundings, the nature and characters inhabiting them.
For a while during the lockdown I found it hard to find inspiration and to concentrate on painting or anything very much. As a consequence, like many I spent far too much time watching television and revisiting favourite old films. Carrying many images around in my head I have found their influence gradually seeping into recent work directly and in a more subtle way.
