Loving what is left.
I love what is left of the Black Fens.
I love the fecund, untamed life that subverts this industrial-agricultural landscape: a geometry
of farmland with long plough lines, intersecting ditches and an ever-present horizon.
I love the wildness which populates drainage ditches. I love and celebrate, what is left, surviving,
The Fens call on my imagination, and help me to love what is left of my own existence, transcending what has gone before.
I see in moments. I paint slowly as I reach back to glimpses of something beautiful or essential. My subjects call now
for bright underpaintings. They demand intense colours and texture, and I slap and scratch into the surface of paint to
reveal what is underneath. I work in water-based oil, acrylic and watercolour.
Visits to my studio are welcome by appointment on Saturday mornings.
