"Another inspiration at Bristol harbourside, this time at the docks where students have created homes on the barges. I have based this painting on the long shadows with fires lit as the cold weather moves in."
"My treasured studio watercolour box offered a wonderful, personal choice of subject. I worked from life as the early morning light filtered through the window. My angled board and surrounding materials gave the perfect backdrop to my Imbuia box of treasures."
"The Bristol harbour life has undergone a regeneration programme; cargo containers have been individually transformed for small businesses bringing a buzz of activity in the area day and night. I have focused on dusk approaching as the restaurants burst into life."
"Walking along the Highline in New York gave me the inspiration for this painting. A quick sketch on site and a few photos to take back to my studio allowed me to capture the conflict of this wonderful mural by Eduardo Kobra set against the present problems of American society. Hence the red lights, implying 'STOP'."
"The image is of an outdoor toilet and sewage tank in a derelict Thames boatyard. The domed architecture of the tank, to which the title refers, and the play of light on this and the surrounding detritus create a subtle and complex scene in terms of colour and composition."
" Arbor refers to the framework forming a canopy to the undergrowth in this composition. This structure is part of a derelict slipway. I was interested in the strong contrast created, both tonally and structurally, between the manmade and the natural in this painting."
