Art can bring colour and mood to a home - finding the right space for a painting (or the right painting for a space) is such a rewarding feeling. Knowing that paintings leave my studio to begin new lives in unknown spaces is humbling, but also completely uplifting.

Predominantly a landscape painter, working in oils, I'm attracted by the effects of light on the landscape and I try to capture this in my work, as well as the feeling of space and shifting colour you get when painting plein air. It has been said that reality lies not in the appearance of the subject, but in the extent
to which it leaves an impression on the viewer. In my paintings, I try to record this impression, this received sensation of a place, rather than just recording 'what' I see. I hope that people can occasionally imagine themselves in my landscapes, and that it is a good feeling.

Running workshops gives me the chance to share my love of the creative process with others. If you would like to hear about upcoming events, exhibitions and workshops, sign up below receive my sporadic newsletters, and don't forget to take a look at the 'What's happening?' page on my site.
