My practice observes nature, land and light.

I find great inspiration and extraordinary complexity in the simplest of subject matter and compositional arrangements; whether landscape, figurative or still life.

My method involves attempting to capture my experience & memory of an object or place by employing visible brush strokes, bold architectural marks made with the palette knife, and contrasting tone and limited detail in my works. I love the way a deft movement of the palette knife can convey something so simply yet with such great impact, such as a wisp of cloud or the shape of a tree.

Painting and drawing enable me to visually communicate my fascination with the play of light upon form, texture, and the inherent character of things.  Changes in light and weather can completely alter our perception of something we have passed hundreds of times but have never really ‘seen’ until bathed in light or cast in deep shadow, bringing out form, intriguing shapes, shadows and crevices.  

I am an Associate Member of the Penwith Society of Arts  and my work is held in private collections both nationally and internationally, in the US, Europe and across the UK. 

Preferred materials include the traditional mediums of oil paint, watercolour, charcoal, pastel and graphite, for their intensity and ability to capture texture, drama, atmosphere and light.
