"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, regularly coming back to the same viewpoint. The distant horizon across the Estuary allows the imagination to find other places including classical and contemporary references. "The way we look at the landscape determines how we understand and internalise it."
