I work from my studio near the Thames estuary often beginning the work out in the location. The environments of estuaries, rivers and the low lying wetlands of Britain and the landscape of France are my constant sources of inspiration. Over the years I have developed a deep awareness and intense relationship to these types of landscapes. My work is often about places that I have explored over a long period of time. Some of these places are related to my childhood memories and therefore are imbued with a deep sense of time. This produces work that is full of personal responses.
My painting methods frequently use textural materials from these areas which are embedded into the paint creating an interesting surface to the work. I apply colour using a wide variety of techniques to capture the flickering light and atmosphere of these locations.
The paintings are about the ever changing qualities of light and the sounds and feelings of existing in these landscapes .
My work has been featured in a number of National Art magazines and I have received a variety of awards and critical success.
My work is collected by a large number of people in the UK and abroad.
UK, France,Italy,Canada,USA,Australia and Oman.
