"This painting was inspired by a fishing trip to Loweswater in the Lake District. A friend and I were staying in a bothy on the edge of the lake, a very dark, frugal building with an open fire and no lighting. Whilst out on a boat pike fishing one evening, I spotted this hill farm clinging to the edge of the far bank. My first thought was what a fantastic farm, with its stone barns with green-blue slate roof. (I get very excited when I see hill farms, I'm weird like that!) I saw a potential painting immediately and photographed it. When I returned to my studio I sketched out the picture. I wanted to include the mountain backdrop, the buildings, the hillside and also some of the water with a hint of reflections, all lit by moonlight and a starry sky. I could still smell the damp air and hear the foxes barking. It got me thinking of what it would be like to work a farm in such a fantastic but remote place. Living on the edge of the wilderness, on the edge of the water. A wild and beautiful place with a hint of danger and fragility. Most of us are living on the edge in one way or another."

Born in Chesterfield, Derbyshire (of 'crooked spire' fame) in 1959.

Wild landscapes are my inspiration. My pictures are amalgamations or distillations of remembered landscapes.
Generally I paint on 36" x 36" square canvas. I find this size and shape pleasing to work on. My compositions are unusual in that all the detail occurs in a quarter or a fifth of the picture.
I then decide on a 'mood' colour which will unify the painting; however the first coat of paint may be the exact opposite. I generally paint with acrylics. I find them versatile and like the quick drying properties.
I like to use texture in my work. This can take different forms: impasto paint, gesso applied with a knife, texture paint, decorator's filler or smoother internal wall plaster.
I sometimes use a crackle glaze between coats of paint which produces fissures in the surface of the paint. I sometimes use 'negative texture' where I scrape back paint to the surface of the canvas."
