My paintings are inspired by nature, architecture, literature and music. The colours I use are primarily connected to nature such as the greens of cedars, the red of rose hips or the blues of the sea. The use of colour is ingrained in the weave of the canvas rather than sitting on top, similar to that of a dye. I use tints, tones and shades of colour thinly layered to add depth to the surface. These are placed alongside one another in simple and clear formations.
