I am inspired by the landscape around me. There is nothing to compare with the colours, scents and sounds of the Provencal landscape to which I return again and again. But the familiar English landscape has its own charm too. I have worked under the large skies of East Anglia and Yorkshire, in the quaint villages of Dorset, and in the townscape of London. Whether at home or abroad, the challenge for me is always the evolution of a visual language with which to express what is in effect, albeit briefly, an experience of all the senses. I want to convey not only a sense of place to the viewer, but also the sheer delight of being there.
