Atmospheric Paintings

I use my memory of places as my primary source of inspiration, relying on sketches and photographs to aid, but not inform, this process.  Using mixed-media, I build up layers of paint until the desired image comes into focus.  Sometimes, I incorporate foundarchival photos into the work.  In order to keep my hand into observational work, I also make observational drawings and watercolours, sometimes with the addition of found objects.   I feel that the two ways of working complement each other.
