I work mainly in oils, using colour and light to interpret the energy and atmosphere I observe in land, sea and snow. Tonal values are important to me and I often paint using a limited palate of colour. I also use acrylics, gouache, pastels and charcoal. I am particularly inspired by The Isles of Scilly, Cumbria and The Cotswolds and the beauty and moods of these stunning areas.
I moved to Cumbria from South Gloucestershire in 2015. Since then, my paintings have been selected for the 2016 Exhibition with The Lake Artists Society in Grasmere and Upfront 2017 Open Exhibition; I have also exhibited locally with C-Art (Culgaith Artists), Cumbrian Artists Showcase, Penrith Art Club, Culgaith Art Club and Tirril Art Group and look forward to exploring new opportunities in 2017.
