MY STORY

I like to contrast elements of tight, structured paint work with loose, atmospheric washes and gestural marks. Colour and texture are both dominant elements in my paintings. Expect to see a mixture of sweeping brush strokes, palette knife work, dripping paint, scratched back surfaces and washy pools of paint.

I respond intuitively to each of the landscapes that I have walked and seek to capture the elemental nature and energy of a place rather than to record a literal interpretation.

Like the patina of time, my work is multi-layered and built up and scraped back over time. This adds both depth and textural variety to my outcomes.

MY BACKGROUND
PGCE Secondary Art Education at Westminster College, University of Oxford.

BA (Hons) Fine Art at Manchester Metropolitan University.


As a secondary school art teacher, I work with some incredible young people who share my passion.
This helps me to keep my own work fresh and vibrant.
