My practice currently focusses on the restorative themes of nature and places experienced. I appreciate the dramatic effects often found in the simplest of subject matter and compositional arrangements, whether figurative, scenic or still life. My palette adapts to capture the atmospheric conditions unique to each place, visible in my works.

Painting and drawing enable me to visually communicate my fascination with the play of light upon form, texture, and the inherent character of things. 

The continuous flux of 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.  

My work is held in private collections both nationally and internationally.  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.
