I am inspired by animals, birds and the natural landscape. I constantly look at life in terms of how to represent it in an interesting way, using varied marks and brushstrokes. My striking, bright paintings are a more colourful interpretation of the South Oxfordshire landscape, local to my home. I grew up in East Lancashire, where the landscape is more rugged and the dramatic moorland of the area does sometimes appear in my art.
I work in acrylics and pastel, enjoying the variety of techniques that can be employed with each medium. I have regular exhibitions throughout the year and work on commissions for clients, having collectors in China, Australia, North America and Europe.
I am an Oxfordshire Artweeks Artist and will be exhibiting in Watlington 2nd-10th May 2020.
