Welcome to my work…

I am a self taught painter living and working from my studio in North Dorset.

Drawing and painting has been a part of who I am for as long as I can remember.  Making art is how I respond to the life I am living, the landscape around me and my own internal word.

The landscapes I paint are mostly in oil. I use palette knives, rags, my fingers – but not brushes. I aim to achieve texture and interest through the paint alone, scraping back and moving it around until I am satisfied that it looks and feels right.

As I develop as an artist my focus is shifting. I am increasingiy interested in the process of painting and making. Of the physicality of doing, feeling, self expression and experimentation. My collages and multi media pieces best reflect this new freedom.
