'It is my aim, with my work, to express the ephemeral beauty and wonderful nature of light. Whether it be an intimate, solitary portrait, a joyous group study, or a sun-kissed landscape, it is the actual light falling upon the subject that has inspired me to paint. I hope to portray the very essence, and thus, the truth, of a particular moment in each of my works, be it a quiet, intimate study or an energetic beach scene. I endeavour to recollect all of the feelings experienced at that time, in accordance with Proust’s message in his epic masterwork, À la recherche du temps perdu, whereby the meaning of Art lies in the power of memory to recapture the past. Through both the chromaticism and the tonality of light, I relish what Monet called ‘the cushion of atmosphere‘, and passionately strive to imbue all my work with such vivid sensation'.
