    Contemporary Landscape Paintings 

I am interested in being deeply involved in nature and the landscape. My particular love is painting plein air on Dartmoor, the local Devon coast, rivers and estuaries that I have known since childhood.
Returning home after a worldwide career as a professional chef, sailor and scuba diver I find that immersing myself once again in these wide open spaces enables me to reconnect with the fleeting, elemental, sensory qualities of light and colour. When I become aware of the pulse of the land in this way I reconnect with the mystical experiences and exuberance of vitality that are abundant in the wild places and in my memories. Trying to catch the moments which most affect and move me, I aim to interweave and evoke these often subtle sometimes powerful qualities, the vitality and zest of life, in my paintings.
 
Using mixed media and oils with whatever is at hand frees me up to spontaneously evoke joyful, poetic and exuberant moments in the landscape.

It doesn't have to be
the blue iris, it could be
weeds in a vacant lot, or a few small stones; just
pay attention, then patch
 
a few words together and don't try
to make them elaborate,
this isn't a contest but the doorway
into thanks, and a silence
in which another voice may speak.
