My practice observes nature, land and light; my subject matter.. typically figurative and landscape.

I find great inspiration and 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.

I am Associate Member of the Penwith Society of Arts (Penwith Gallery, St Ives).  My work is held in private collections nationally and internally, and a UK public collection.  Preferred materials include the traditional mediums of oil paint, watercolour, charcoal, pastel and graphite, for their intensity and ability to capture drama, texture, atmosphere and light.

"The heart of us is very much like the sea, it has its storms, it has its tides and in its depths, it has its pearls too." - Vincent van Gogh (The Letters of Vincent van Gogh)
