'My passion for the pursuit of God has given me the desire to capture the beauty of His creation, and weave this into my work. Capturing light has always been a major theme for me, but more recently I have been painting the ‘event’ rather than just the observed subject. There are often, should the viewer wish to see, hidden stories or meanings within the works. I do not necessarily set out to express an idea, but it develops within me as I paint. The recent astonishing skies have captured my imagination and given me momentum as I now revisit my favoured subject - ‘The Manx Landscape’. This has launched me into a whole new body of work.'
