Following the technical study of both the land and weather for 40 years as a landscape architect and flying instructor in the UK and Middle East, painting is a relatively recent and liberating creative outlet, resulting in work that loosely evokes place, space, scale and light.

From a rural North Yorkshire studio, this work celebrates the elements, and the liminal landscapes, coastlines and islands of the North and West of Great Britain and Ireland. It captures the dark edges of land and light in fleeting weather conditions, using acrylic, collage and mixed media, with spontaneity and fluidity. There is a layering of romantic sensibility alongside a contemplative approach, balanced with technical experimentation and cultural influences.
Smaller and more intimate pieces complement larger works requiring greater energy and physicality. No settled style here, rather a range of mark making and texture that can vary from heavy impasto to thin glazes, and can change daily depending on mood and instinct.
