'Moving to the North East has surprised me by its combination of natural grandeur and a post-industrial landscape that has stimulated my increasing desire to “just paint”. The steep sided dales, the miles of stonewalls, the light and the man-made geography are very exciting and to my delight I am starting to get things finished.It occurs to me that over thirty-five years late I am completing some of the opportunities that were put in front of me at art school.'

'My painting is about a synthesis of the experience of the land in which we live with the inner landscape of the self. I am committed to finding a visual equivalent for our internal landscape as seen and experienced in our external world. Having finally achieved the ambition of living on the West Coast of Scotland I have now embarked on a process of submission. I want the place to work on me so that I can find a voice to represent what it has to say. '
