“My subject matter is often landscape, particularly where the land meets the sea, beaches, cliffs, and wetlands. I enjoy the emotional charge and excitement of painting in the open and it is this feeling that I want to get down on paper as it invests the image with its character and energy. I find that the marks that I make on location, in response to what is in front of me, are impossible to reproduce in a studio environment. Once back in my studio I develop and evolve a silkscreen print or monotypes from the paintings that I have produced. The silkscreen process lends a natural simplification to an image imbuing it with a paired back graphic quality whilst the nuances of marks and depth of blacks that the monotype process offers are particularly effective at evoking the drama of light in the landscape” Andy Lovell
