I aim to engender a mood and poetry of place. I do this through quality of light, distortion of perspective and scale. The old harbours, villages and castles of Scotland, their strong bold shape and their lyrical narrative, attract me. Broken and layered application of paint reflects my interest in the textural and unifying properties of the divisionist tradition.
