Biography

This latest work explores the emotions and ideas I experience whilst walking within the landscape; the feeling of my footsteps upon a broken path, obstacles I go around, breathtaking vistas that stop me in my tracks, taking my breath away.
All elements that seep into my own consciousness and that remain when I’m back in my studio transferring these experiences through paint - they are a journey of life.

inspiration

‘Painting both outdoors and then back in the studio helps me to build a painterly story, expressing many layers that sometimes I have to walk away from, find time to reflect, and then return. They are a reconnection to place, an interpretation of the natural world’

medium

Although I work with acrylics when running workshops or doing demos, my favourite medium is Oils mixed with Cold Wax medium. This gives a wide range of pushing dualities, and allows me to create marks/texture over periods of weeks…adding to the ‘journey’ of time and place.
