How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

Artist

I think my work began just as a record of my rural life in Wales and very slowly grew into something relatable, something to do with the immutability of the land and the smallness of dwellings in their isolation.

I still make multiple small landscape sketches in pen on walks or on drives and by projecting the sketches in the studio I find a scale to work at that interests me. Looking at a map pinned up on my wall I took the simple idea of piecing sheets of paper together and make my own massive maps. I enjoy the process of making these studio drawings, painting in the white background after redrawing the sketch and rolling down the skies with printing inks

In the summer I will drag an old pram loaded with paints, a chair and long wave radio into the Hay field and paint in acrylics for the joy and speed of it. I sometimes think it's not about painting a picture of the landscape it's about doing a bit of painting in the landscape.

My Abstract paintings in pre-dominantly black oil paint are often just about the act of painting. I paint and draw because it absorbs me completely for a while.
