The inspiration for my work comes from arable landscapes, exploring the balance between the natural and the cultivated, in addition to the River Orwell. My paintings depict the underlying energies; above and below, the stories seen in rock, soil, vegetation and water, and the memories and signs left by people over time who used the land and the river from ancient time to present.

Later work shows the transition from living in an environment  surrounded by fields and close to the river, to the centre of town, combining different energies, colours, textures and sounds with memories of large open skies, ploughed fields and the river.

The paintings tell a story, which is for every viewer unique.
