Artistic backgroundPainting has always been a part of who I am, as a self-taught and have developed my own unique style. I paint with a palette knife and the textural quality of my work is a key feature. The texture (impasto) also brings the painting to life and creates a structural quality to the work, giving a more three-dimensional feel.
I have exhibited widely in the UK and also in Europe, I am grateful to have sold my paintings to buyers all over the world and have many that return to become collectors of my work
I also hold regular painting workshops throughout the year, inspiring others to create.
The process of painting and creating captivates me, allowing my emotional response to develop and fuse into the subject. I work with a palette knife, cloth and a variety of implements, exploring the structure of the subject, building up layers of paint, colour and texture. My art is a reflection of my fascination with the natural elements in our surroundings. I am inspired by the richness of colour and texture in the natural landscape. I am compelled to paint.
I undertake commissions. If there is a particular subject, painting, style or idea you would like, I would be delighted to hear from you.”
