The desire to escape, to transport myself to imagined places, to imaginary moments is always present in my work.

A lot of my work is inspired by landscape.  By the subtle light of the North. By the landscape of the North – Northern Canada, Iceland, Ireland, Scotland.  By the big sky. By the sea.

But it goes beyond the landscape.  It’s about memory – about the atmosphere, about the impression left by a sunrise or sunset or midnight sun, by a night sky, by a brief glance at the clouds or the horizon or the land or the sea, by the shape of a mountain or a rock or a stone.  It’s the abstraction of this memory, the imagination of that memory. My work surprise at times – by the contrast of subtle colour changes and hard, bold lines, by brilliant colours, by black and white. It arouses curiosity. What we thought we recognized has become ambiguous, mysterious, mystical.
