about me



Welcome to my blog, I hope that you enjoy looking my artwork.



I am a landscape artist living and working in the beautiful Weald of Kent, in the UK. I have a studio in my garden, and work outside as much as possible. I follow the seasons in my paintings, allowing the colours and mood to seep into my paintings.

 I work with landscapes, from which I draw my inspiration. The play of light and shadow, and the in-the-moment experience of absorbing the world around me inform my work. I am also drawn by my memories of a childhood spent outside, the visual impact and pleasure of that still resonates with me. I love colour and texture and in my work am always attempting to use these elements to create a harmonious balance. 

I frequently throw paint at my canvas, and work with the canvas on the floor, dripping paint onto it. The spontaneity that gives me very valuable.

I make many commissioned paintings, please view my commissions page to see examples.
