I went back to Alton College the other week to do a talk about what i've been doing since i left there in 2006. It was strange to be back but good in a way to reflect on how my work has changed. Looking back at my older work, it was extremely colourful and messy and there was lots of it, with sketchpads full of mistakes and experimenting. Looking at my work now, it seems to me to be more refined yet sombre, someone once told me that my landscapes looked like they would swallow you up whole. I would like to get back to a freer way of working again but still retain an atmospheric edge to my work.
