I love the wide sea and landscapes of Dorset where I live; natural open spaces with the imprint of human effort and change over time; the transient movement of light and cloud shadows gliding over.
I am excited by my current work which is both atmospheric and expressive, the culmination of many years of self-learning and development of style. Each work is unique and I think, succeeds on several levels, so that its appeal will be lasting, long retaining new discoveries and a sense of mystery.
Inspired by emotional reaction to a place, I spend time mark making, feeling the atmosphere, painting pleinair, looking for rhythms and flow in nature, elegant lines.
When painting I aim for expressive freshness and luminosity in colour and a sense of movement through space and time.
Major influencers include Piero Della Francesca, Turner, Diebenkorm and the emphasis on elegance and simplicity in Japanese art.
Studied drawing and painting at The Slade, UCL, Yachtmaster Offshore, Cert. Ed. and onetime ceramic painter, I have always painted - watercolours, oils and acrylics. I have exhibited widely in the UK including in the Mall galleries with the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, although my personal journey as an artist has always been more important to me.
