About the Artist
I live in rural Cowfold, painting full time, In between commissions, I paint landscapes, seascapes, and botanicals in either a contemporary or a realistic style. I also paint semi-abstract impressions of caves, woodlands and forests.
I have been painting for many years and when my children left home, I was able to throw myself into painting as a full time career.
I try to focus on giving atmosphere to a painting by gathering inspiration from having been somewhere and painting it as my own interpretation of what I saw.
Being outdoors in all weathers is inspirational for my work. I grew up in the foothills of the South Downs National Park in Sussex and spent a lot of time outdoors so having all that freedom to roam with a hands-on connection with nature, which was the bedrock of my creativity.
