I like portraying  old, weather-worn, isolated and derelict cottages, farms or outbuildings with dramatic skies using the materials to capture the scene.. Overall my intention is to put into my pieces, feelings we have when we see beauty in nature or in  history, a roof that has it's rafters exposed, a building that has part collapsed, crumbling plaster and the traces of peeling paint on an old wall from decades before, skies to get lost in or trees gripping our attention as they blow in the wind. I'm inclined towards a mix of media, acrylics or inks, before bringing the piece together with the use of oils.  This process creates depths and ages my artwork, with textures being revealed from underneath the pigment.  I use a limited palette when it comes to colour, very often inclined towards blues.   I  also like to experiment with the effects that wire, scraping, wiping and sanding can have on the mood of a piece often using my hands, rags or spatulas.
