Primarily a landscape painter, Joe's always concentrating on the light and atmosphere of an area. “Her's is a contemplative intuitive approach, an attempt to portray the essence of the land rather than a figurative representation of it.” Using the time honoured traditional method of glazed oil paint (thin layers of paint) which best utilizes the paints translucent qualities to build up a subtle depth of colour. Though a very lengthy process, it allows the paintings to glow with light. A technique employed by the old masters.

Frequently the initial inspiration for paintings comes simply from gazing up at a light filled canopy, the magical affect being almost that of stained glass, a cathedral canopy. The work embraces the influence of light, and is always essentially celebratory.
