‘My family and I always head for the coast or the hills whenever we holiday or take days out. A great source of inspiration comes from the nearby Lake District where I see the warmth and humour of the North – a spectacular mountain view can often be softened by a washing line of the week’s underpants and bras! The Lake District in particular is a rich hunting ground for my ideas – bleak and barren landscapes broken by trees, gnarled and twisted by the wind. Other places of interest to me are Cornwall, the west coast of Ireland and the Borders and Highlands of Scotland. My aim is to create dramatic, vibrant scenes with a hint of quirky humour, although some people can see a slightly darker side to my work. Painting seems so similar to music to me. I’m always trying to create the most amazing composition that people won’t be able to resist and purchase. A bit like creating a number one record I guess’
