“I am fascinated by the feel of woods and forests, especially the darker side, as captured in Grimm’s fairy tales, and in many ghost/horror works of fiction. Within landscapes, it is often the atmosphere and feel of a place that intrigues me, and that I aim to capture, as well as the aesthetics of the place. I see the places/scenes/landscapes that I choose to paint as ‘backdrops’ for what may happen within those places. It is the ‘event’ or ‘story’ connected to a place that more often than not leads me to being drawn to the place that I paint.”
