My work has many influences, from Buddhist philosophy to Abstract Expressionism. When I make, I try to see everything afresh, to capture the impact of what I see. A particular instant of light in the woodland is just one second in the whole of history; I use photography to capture that. The painted image arises from a mix of a sense of wonder, an understanding of materials, hard work and experience. I aim for emotional truth but also to make people happy. It may sound an innocent aim, but it’s true to who I am.
