Thank you for visiting this website. I hope you will find my paintings to be an exciting mix in which I am attempting to display the spirit of the place rather than a photographic image.
Living in Hampshire alongside both the New Forest and the banks of Southampton Water my artwork is influenced by my surroundings and life experiences. Abstracts, seascapes and landscapes are subjects I love and portraiture has long been a passion of mine. I always strive to capture that element in a subject that inspires and often compels me to paint; be it the sparkle on the water or the effect of light in the sky or in the case of a portrait the soul behind the eyes. My techniques and applications are varied. I use several mediums but favour acrylics and oils. In the case of my abstracts each painting is a journey of exploration and discovery, intense colour reflects my mood and emotions but the painting takes its own path and determines the process towards the end result.
