I am a creator of land, sky, and seascapes. Working in oils and acrylics I like to use strong vibrant colours, sometimes using only a palette knife to add texture and movement to the painting. Rolling hills and deep seas are compelling subjects for me and I love the total absorption that translating these scenes demands.
Though self-taught and late arriving at a place in life where I can focus creatively, I have made it my aim to learn from more established artists whose work I admire and respect. My influences are, in the main, contemporary artists such as Anthony Garratt (a.garrett.com), an artist and tutor with the Newlyn School of Art; seascape artists Janette Kerr (janettekerr.co.uk) and Louise Balaam (louisebalaam.co.uk), artists whose works inspire me and I enjoy the passion each of them shows in their work; all very different but equally free in their application of paint. It’s great to be in touch with such a vibrant art culture and I am loving it.
This year, 2020 I expected to show my work during Warwickshire Open Studios (WOS) at my home studio in Leamington Spa. Due to circumstances beyond the control of all of us, this cannot happen as planned and so, we, the artists of Coventry and Warwickshire are inviting you the would-be visitors to take your time instead to view this work on-line. This year my website contains a series of small semi abstract land and seascapes. I hope you enjoy the view
