Tag: My Process

I’m heavily influenced by impressionism and post-impressionism. I love extravagant use of colour, flowing yet hasty brush strokes, the effects of sunlight and shadow; for me it’s about colour, light and texture. In every painting I strive to push the boundaries of how I paint and the marks that I make. I look for new ways to represent familiar landscapes. I aim for the viewer to not only recognise the landscape, but recognise an emotion that the landscape evokes.
