'At Sunset people gather on the beach and watch as the sun seems to sink into the sea. There is stillness and feeling of calm.
The moon rises and casts a silvery reflection over the waves.
Our children sit round in the big hole they've dug in the sand while we sit on the balcony and sip our drinks.
The sea on this part of the coast really does look blue whereas in other locations it looks more brown or grey - here those are the Winter colours.
There is often a beautiful mauve sky at sunset and this can look spectacular against the granite greys of they town's rooftops.'

‘The application of paint to canvas or board using brushes, palette knife and fingers result in passages of impasto as well as washes of translucent colour. The trick is knowing when to stop.
The subject matter is often light, air and water. The objective to create pieces that evoke emotions linked to memories’.
