I live in the South Downs National Park and constantly inspired by the landscape and the coastline and sea along the south coast.
My landscapes and seascapes capture the elements; sun, wind, rain and the effect these have on the sky, land and the sea.
The mark making is spontaneous and I use various mediums to create work that is expressive,, energetic and atmospheric.
I often works by visiting the landscape a number of times, creating pastel and charcoal sketches to inform the final work. The larger scale paintings are completed in my studio. I may also work quickly and spontaneously in the landscape to capture the changing light and create a painting in one session.
I’m am also fascinated by human emotions and relationships and I create abstract works that explore the human condition in all its’ diversity.
My paintings are with private collectors throughout the UK, Holland, Australia and the U.S.
