"I am an urban and industrial landscape painter working mostly in oil and enamel.
I am interested in simplifying the depiction of the image. The directness of Japanese painting inspires my mark making. It is the act of painting itself that excites me; where the image becomes a backdrop to the gestural sweep, the graphic mark, the blobs and smears of colour.
I seek a way through the recognizable view to locate something beyond the image and beneath the surface; a flash of movement in the stillness of a buildings' facade, a life lived. " - Mary Visser
