About Me

I studied Fine Art for six years, and became a full time painter in 2016.

I’m passionate about painting and inspired by what I see in nature.

The joy of being in nature, is being able to feel the elements, the sense of space and scale, and the beautiful colours that become apparent the more you look.
I can normally be found either on some windswept coastal path, or back at my studio in East Yorkshire working up the effects to completion.
The Yorkshire coast inspired me to paint a series of work from Spurn Point up to Robin Hood’s Bay, last year.
I love the sea, because it gives a landscape another large surface that reflects light and has movement. A landscape is brought to life by the envelope of light and atmosphere upon it, creating a harmony of colours specific to that moment you are seeing. With that in mind, I’ll often look for surfaces and shapes within a landscape, that will show that moment of light and atmosphere best.
I paint each element of a landscape as if i’m creating it. I tend to move and twist my brush (and often ruin them) as if I’m actually creating the rocks or water etc.
It’s been a wonderful few years, I’ve met such lovely and kind people, and it’s taken me to some beautiful places.
I’ve exhibited in the U.K. and France, and have paintings in private collections in the U.K., Europe, Hong Kong, Canada and the US.

I hope you enjoy my paintings. Thank you very much for visiting my website.
