The subject-matter of my paintings is the agricultural landscape of East Yorkshire, particularly that of the Holderness area along the north bank of the River Humber.

These paintings have been made by a process that I have come to see as echoing the changes in the land itself. Their starting point is always a pastel sketch made in a specific location and the subsequent studio paintings developed from these sketches are made by applying many layers of colour and sometimes selectively scratching through one layer to reveal the layer beneath. I am not aiming to produce an accurate representation of that location, my aim is to recreate something of the experience of being in that landscape at that particular time of year.
