Having grown up in rural Worcestershire, I have always found joy in expansive landscapes. As a child, I had a special place at the top of our lane where I would sit and could see for miles; it was exhilarating, like being on top of the world!
However, living in the landlocked Midlands does give me a hankering after the coast. Like many of us, I have always felt an affinity with the sea and can watch it for hours. I visit as often as possible with my sketchbook in hand to try and capture the true essence of a particular place at that moment in time.
I love painting outdoors and I feel truly alive when finding new ways to express the light, beauty and emotion in the landscape under the changing skies. Feeling the same excitement and wonder I felt in my childhood is what drives me to create my paintings.
Oils and acrylics are my preferred mediums; I enjoy exploring abstract and impressionistic techniques using exciting colour combinations, exploring shapes, texture and experimenting with different mark-making implements.
On my website, original paintings, prints and cards are available to buy. I have some workshops arranged in 2024, email me for more details. I also do commissions, so don't hesitate to contact me if you have a favourite place you'd like captured in an original bespoke painting.
