"My passion will always be the landscape, it is why I became an artist... Colour and light motivate me in choosing what to paint —the light sparkling on the water, the colour reflected in the landscape. I favour early morning or late afternoon to capture these effects.

As an artist I need the surroundings to speak to me before I can reveal my vision of the way I see the world to others. After experiencing a major exhibition by Claude Monet many years ago I remember leaving the gallery and seeing the world in a different way. I then saw “Monet-type” streets with “Monet-type” people in a “Monet-type” world. To this day I still see my surroundings through the eyes of an impressionist.
