Having worked in a variety of media, paint and printmaking, I now work mainly in oils, I respond to my surroundings and am particularly interested in atmosphere.
Since 2020 my focus has been on local landscapes. Sometimes working en plein air, I am attracted to strong composition, light and tonal contrast. I like to begin my paintings in a loose gestural manner which determines the route the painting is to take, often with a large element of abstraction.
My work sells internationally online and via local galleries. Several of my works were purchased in 2023 by Omaze for luxury interior design projects in The Cotswolds and Yorkshire.. My paintings were also selected for LandEscape Contemporary Art Review, vol 67, July 2022 and Circle Arts quarterly magazine Autumn 2021.
