My work varies from quite realistic depictions to abstract. My style is a freestyle that can scan the broad range of subjects I like to work with. I am always keen to incorporate light and movement as much as possible, and enjoy using texture within my work. Acrylics are the dominant material used, but I am always keen to incorporate other mediums where appropriate, especially pastels and charcoals.
I am inspired by many subjects but my main focus is seascapes, landscapes, and more recently cityscapes. A wealth of material in all of these subjects is of course available in and around my immediate area.
I am a member of Devon Artist Network, and Oxfordshire Artweeks. I have had many successful solo and shared exhibitions over the last ten years, in both Devon and Oxfordshire.
I hold independent art workshops and have regular classes in my Studio and Gallery. I keep these as small as possible to ensure the atmosphere is unthreatening, relaxed and encouraging – this really seems to benefit my students in their creativity and growth. I have also been asked to speak and demonstrate at various art groups in the area.
I undertake commissions, and have successfully completed many over the last year, being rewarded by the pleasure these have bought my clients.
As with any artist, I am constantly growing and learning more within my area of work. My inspiration is kept alive by the constant change in our landscape and the pleasure obtained by capturing some of its beauty.
