"THERE'S NOTHING LIKE SEEING THE SEASONS PLAY OUT ON THE LANDSCAPE. RIDING AROUND THESE HILLS ALWAYS INSPIRES ME TO PAINT"
"My usual process is to go out for a bike ride, get inspired, and snap some photos on the way. Ideally, I'll begin painting those images within a couple of days, while the feeling of that place and moment is still with me. Sometimes, though, I'll take my gear out on location to paint - en plein-air. My plein-air paintings are often my favorites. The changing light doesn't allow time for precision, strokes are loose. I feel like the vibrancy of the setting, and my excitement over what I'm seeing really shows through in those plein-air paintings. "
