'Dawn Over the Valley'is in part a celebration of the Dorset landscape but also an exploration of the human condition – the constant search for meaning, which seems almost always over the next horizon. Through this work I’m trying to capture that innate curiosity and desire to make clear what evades us. This painting is about both a literal interpretation of the Studland and Corfe Castle landscape but also an expression of feeling through mark making, composition and colour – as an attempt to capture both our internal and external landscapes. Ever changing, shifting and surprising us.

My works are both literal and part memory part feeling. Living on the Isle of Purbeck I am constantly walking around the heathlands and nature reserves. I take pictures, sketches and note the sensations that this beautiful and magical place creates in and for me. In some way I am trying to pass this experience on to the viewer - to see and feel it through my eyes.
