Biography

I am inspired by the natural world, and my motivation is to express a sense of wonder through art. Details of plant, stone or water find their way into abstract paintings of deceptive simplicity. The landscape and skies of Britain in all seasons provide inspiration for atmospheric paintings. The main body of my work is in oils using a particular blending technique on carefully prepared canvas. I also work in mixed media and create works on paper. I teach weekly classes in Surrey. .
