"I paint places where I have a connection either personal or through ideas and thoughts that interest me. The Humber Estuary is a major source of inspiration and I use the space it provides to explore these thoughts and ideas. This includes historical and classical references, to process of painting itself. I find it important to come back to the same scenes and reference points again and again. "The way we look at the landscape determines how we understand and internalise it." Structura is a paste applied to the surface of the paper to provide some texture as part of the painting process.
