'The tree paintings are originally inspired by driving through Ireland during the winter of my mother’s death looking at trees so poignant like line drawings on the dusk sky.

In a sense focusing on the poignancy of the trees was a way to describe the continuing pull and ebb of family life – leaving children to drive to a sick parent and necessarily been drawn back and forth between the parent and the young family, a universal experience.

The trees remained with me, I continued painting them not only as the winter line drawings on the sky but also in their various colourful dresses throughout the year.'
