In my paintings I seek to combine the physicality of what I see, with my emotional response to the subject. I want my paintings to capture a particular time and place, describing through paint a fleeting but significant experience of somewhere.
I am fascinated by the architecture and life of the city. The constantly changing light and shadow, the contrast of stone and brick with neon lights. The reflection of lamps on the river at dusk, empty barges silhouetted in the light and quiet East End backstreets. People passing along glistening wet London pavements, figures and traffic fading into the sunset on Embankment. These moments contrast beautifully with other aspects of the city, the bustle and colour of Piccadilly or the constantly moving life of New York. All these elements inform my work and inspire me to find more ways to communicate what I experience.
