'The moorland landscape where we live is beautiful and inspirational. Rooks strut importantly on freshly ploughed fields, and foxes, the risk-takers, walk silently and quickly, hoping to surprise the unaware rabbit. Back in the studio these colourful images
are encouraged to emerge and take over; the colours of the foxgloves and heathers influence the backgrounds on the canvas or the paper.
Influences: Paul Klee, Grayson Perry and Michael Sowa.
