I have been a painter of the observed landscape for over two decades now, painting in oil on board or canvas, usually on a horizontal format, and often as diptychs or triptychs.   I have a love of the paint, and my medium is invariably applied vigorously, with thick and energetic impasto marks.  I came into my practice initially as a plein-air landscape painter, making small works not wholly beholden to but derived from what was seen on location, and in reaction to a myriad of external (and perhaps internal) circumstances.  Despite their modest scale and in deference to the subject, I strive to make even my small canvases possess an inherent monumentality.
