I spent a number of days walking amongst the trees and gathering information for a series of paintings through drawing and photography; I wanted to absorb the sights and sounds of the trees in the forest and find a way to recreate something of that experience in paint.

I am interested in surfaces and textures and the way materials can be combined to

create tactile qualities. Cold wax can be applied in thin layers or heavy impasto. It can be scored, scoured and burnished like a rich stoneware ceramic glaze; it can left dry, broken, fragmented and uneven.


This painting is based on reflections seen in one of the many streams that carve a pathway through the New Forest; the

water is often stained deep orange with iron minerals from the surrounding rocks.
