THE LIGHT WITHIN

All my life I have been fascinated by the light within. That essential essence that exists under the surface of our everyday reality. We don’t talk about it, but we all know it’s there. We can sense it.

As a child I found it confusing that people would try and hide this light. They would mask and transform it or pretend it didn’t exist. Nature, on the other hand, I always felt was very comfortable with this light. When I would walk on the Common next to my childhood home in England, the trees were always the same from one day to the next. They never pretended to be something other than they were. They were simply trees and I loved them for it.

It is this light within that I seek to capture in my paintings.

Every painting starts as a leap of faith. I invite the light into my garden studio and I allow it to
unfold and express itself in its own unique way. Sometimes I have a glimpse of where the light will take me and other times I don’t. I simply allow the paint brush to flow and undulate across the canvas in a fluid and organic way.

I consider myself a landscape painter, but I don’t paint the landscape that I see. I paint the landscape that I experience. In every moment, there is an opportunity for nature to not only express itself as life, but also, as paint onto a canvas. In that moment, the canvas becomes the landscape and the light becomes the artist. The ocean. The trees. The clouds. All of the elements of my work are created that way, dissolving the forms into their essential elements.

The Light Within

I have been painting for over 25 years and for me painting is an essential part of who I am. It is an instinctual process of creativity and expression. Each painting is a reference point for what I am experiencing in my life, just like keeping a diary.
