2020 statement.

I work in a fluid, expressive style to portray the atmosphere of a place and time rather than topographical detail. 
The landscape is the main inspiration for my artistic practice, in particular East Anglia’s beautiful coast and vast skies. 
I’m also interested in the way the weather and changing seasons mark the passage of time and affect the mood of the sea, sky and landscape. 

I am inspired by Becker’s attachment to the agricultural landscape that surrounds us and the simplicity of his mark making that beautifully captures the everyday scenes around him.
