HinesJ1As a visual artist I am inspired by colour and light. I have been making images since childhood but it is only now in my retirement that I am exploring different mediums, experimenting with different styles and gradually finding my own language.

I am preoccupied with the excitement created where one colour meets another, where pictorial elements become subtly abstract, where line intersects with or intrudes on another form and where form meets form.

My work is inspired by the energy created by the magic, tension and conflict when edges such as land meets sea or sea meets horizon.
