My subjects range from old steam locomotives, disused farm machinery, the evidence of vanishing industry on marshland and coastline to architectural detail of old vernacular buildings. It is my endeavour to depict the poignancy and drama to be found in these vestiges of a vanishing age that are often overlooked. The paintings are expressionist representations of the subjects, sometimes consisting of a particular detail rather than the whole. They contain unusual perspectives and strong contrasts of light and shade. I work in oil on canvas and use heightened and unusual colour effects.
