'Much of the inspiration for my work comes from transitory moments rushing to get into the surf at the end of the day or early in the morning; the smell, the clarity and calm, I find when I am immersed in it. My paintings are about these experiences, about the vitality of the sea or the landscape; they are, fleeting impressions, revisited, layered, and compressed they are about remembering in paint.'
