A region of outstanding beauty and gateway to the South of France.
I want the Provence I paint to be sensual and aromatic, with morning mists,
shimmering light, and where intensity of heat is reflected in every stroke of colour used.
I want colour to intensify the drama of the encounter,
rhythmic use of soft pastel to energise the surface used.
I want to remind the viewer that they are confronting an artfully constructed piece of work.
These vibrant and yet mellow paintings of Provence have been produced to give
a spiritual calmness of an amazing landscape that once seen in reality
you will find almost unimaginable to want to leave behind.
