“As an artist, the fleeting qualities of light and colour excite me. I am trying to grasp the internal qualities, the essential mood and spirit of place. Sometimes I use a straightforward, representational approach, but increasingly I am exploring the abstract. I love to experiment with texture and colour and follow themes and ideas of work, large and small.” FW
