In recent years his work has transitioned from realistic landscapes that had a sense of magical realism and a simple joy in looking closely at nature and being immersed in that experience.Today the work still speaks the language of landscape, but has become focused on colour, form and emotional moments of response to internal and external wanderings. Being in the moment is an intrinsic part of the expression. There is a search here, a sense of looking through to the heart of personal experience and man's interaction with the world..This is suggestive abstraction giving the viewer license to develop their own discourse with the paintings.
