Artist Statement

By circumstance I was a child of both worldly hemispheres.  My inspiration comes from Jamaica’s intense light to the muted, brooding austerity of Scottish highlands and finally to the dryness of Australia's South West.  The feel and colour in all these locales has seeped into my memory, leaping across time and onto paper, canvas and board.

My work continues a passionate response to the environment in which I live. I’m drawn to ephemeral elements, organic contours and patterns, and to a sense of space.  I don’t try to depict the landscape as I see it, but as it feels.  Playing with nuances of colour and mark making I am able to walk into the memory of those landscape encounters.
