About The Artist

My paintings walk the line between representation and abstracted elements.

I have always found great comfort in the landscape, an association or strong alliance between myself and the land travelled. I have become more in tune with the ever-changing weather and seasons which so dramatically change the landscape.

My work intends to be a reaction or conjure a deep response to the essence of a place. Some of my work is instinctive drawing ‘en plien aire’ while other work derives from a memory or instinctive reaction to a place visited. One could say it is the energy and spirit of a place or landscape which is filtered directly into my work.

Often the work is inspired from fast, compositional studies drawn in situ, which starts the process of understanding the place. Some of these places and landscapes I re-visit time and again and it is through my exploration and adventure that I have developed a deeper understanding of the place.

I am a self-taught painter, who completed degrees in Landscape Architecture and Urban Design. This interest and passion in the natural and man-made environment has formed the basis for my work.

Currently ‘Head of Creative Arts’ at Priors Field School, Godalming.
