My work is a response to landscapes, both natural and man-made. I find inspiration in the colours of disturbed areas such as mine waste, saltpans and quarries. There is an element of process in the paintings: I use a lot of water which I allow to flow amongst the particles of paint which to some degree simulates the actions of erosion and dispersal. The copper and steel pieces are an attempt to follow change over time – these are not static and will continue to develop.
