My paintings are not strictly botanical or a straight visual description of flowers and plants. I've always been far more interested in the life that is in the plant rather than a static representation, and I have tried to record that.

Each flower is unique, the way it grows and how even in the same species they can look so different.

I spend 90% of my time looking at the subject before applying paint – I sit with it - and only then (when I feel as if I know the plant) does a painting begin... I have painted and recorded plant life in this way for over 30 years. Over that time I have repeatedly used marks and paint in a way that resembles the subject but now I feel as though my visual and internal connection with the subject needs to speak for itself on paper and canvas and not necessarily in a way that one would except but in another way.
