Inspiration has been Journeying, whether around the world or to my favourite beach, hillside or just a walk to the corner shop.

My surroundings are the starting point, but it’s more about my response—not the initial representation, but the thoughts and memories that these places evoke.

I always travel with sketchbooks, journals and reading books and my iTouch for music and for information. As I travel I have to record these responses in quick gestural marks, whether of colour, shapes, textures or words. So when I return to the studio I have an ‘aide memoire’ to help embellish my ideas.
