I am a painter and printmaker and have been creating art since completing my B.A. (Hons) in Fine Art at Sunderland University in 1995.
My work is influenced by the landscapes around me and the natural forms and wildlife that I observe.
My paintings are an expressive and atmospheric response to being in the landscape. The perpetual motion of nature verses man is a theme that runs throughout my work where I am constantly challenged by the depiction of landscape.
I often use observational studies to create still life paintings and hand pulled prints that originate from ‘found objects’ that I collect while out walking. This rich source of information allows me to explore different aspects of the landscape through a wide range of mediums and applications such as relief print, intaglio and textiles.
I work from my studio in Cornwall where I am inspired by the beautiful and diverse landscapes that it offers.
A range of works is available through my Etsy Shop or through Open Studio events.
