I have always loved drawing and painting and all the magic that can be created with a simple mark and an infinity of colours.
My paintings are inspired by nature and the landscape. I try to capture the playful effects of sunlight and how it affects colour and atmosphere with a scene.
The subject matter of my paintings jumps between vast open spaces and woodlands, to intimate still life's and groups of figures.
Whether painting in nature or in my studio I allow exploration and intuition to guide me. Ultimately I strive to create uplifting paintings that evoke a sense of optimism and calm.
