‘’The idea for this series of paintings came from a simple wish to bring the outdoors inside, and an initial vision of how I would love to see images of life-sized animals leaping around the space. My desire is to capture the sense of the animal, their very nature and traits and of course, their beauty. The deer in particular, have been a joy to paint, the lightness and skittishness of their personality make them all the more intriguing; I love that they hide and watch so carefully then bound away into the shelter of trees and foliage.”

‘’When I stand in front of a wonderful, riotous, colourful garden border or witness the intense variety found in a wildflower meadow I am overcome by a deep feeling of pleasure. Through painting what I see I am trying to capture and communicate all that being there means to me -the energy, colour, variety and beauty of the natural world and its ability to restore and invigorate.

‘’I want to describe a response to my immediate environment, either rural or urban and, sometimes, my travels further afield. My excitement with colour, form, line and texture gives me an intuitive language to express this dialogue. Often it is perverse; the town can be tranquil, calm, reassuring while the countryside can be edgy, challenging or insecure’’
