Contemporary British Landscape Painter
I work in a free, expressive style to capture the atmosphere of a place and time rather than geographical detail. Primarily using watercolour and acrylic I like to experiment by incorporating other materials and mediums often using charcoal, pastel, pencil and sand to enhance my paintings.
The beautiful Norfolk landscape is the main inspiration for my artistic practice, in particular the beautiful coast around Cromer where I live and the wide-open skies. I love the way the weather and changing seasons mark the passage of time and affect the mood of the sea, sky and landscape.
I completed a BA Hons. in Fine Art in the 1980’s at Stourbridge in the West Midlands and, after several years working in marketing I returned to study MA in Fine Art at the Norwich University of the Arts in 2009.
