b. New Forest, England (1963), currently working in Bristol.

I am a landscape artist working primarily in oils. Moved  by weather and the changing light it creates in the landscape, I recreate these internal moods in my work. I am drawn to the empty moorlands,  wild coastlines and mountain landscapes of the UK, taking inspiration from the work of Joan Eardley and Kurt Jackson.


Having trained in printmaking at The Bristol School of Art alongside a career in teaching in schools and prisons, I now prefer to work in oil. 


I experience the landscape by running, cycling and walking in it. Painting preliminary sketches en plein air, these are then worked into oil paintings, whereby layers of glazes are perfected and destroyed until the desired finish emerges. Oil paint is applied using found objects such as seaweed and grasses alongside traditional brushes and palette knives.


Current work focuses on wild Scottish landscapes and atmospheric skies, painted after a residency at Cove Park and many explorations of Scotland. My paintings can be found in private collections in the UK and France.
