thanks for stopping by.
I am now working on commissions for the next few months.
If you'd like to receive details of future releases - please sign up to my mailing list:
My art career started with a stained glass apprenticeship - during which I was lucky enough to work on restoration projects such as York Minster, Gloucester and Wells cathedrals.
I quickly progressed onto design work which taught me to compose and stylise subject matter around a 'jigsaw' of painted glass - an approach which still drives my work today.
I am fascinated by colour and work with a strong palette to create deep impasto effects with the paint.
I relish the often frantic nature of mixing and arranging the paint in thick impressionistic daubs, and submitting to a process that creates its own detail and form.
This forces me to be bold and decisive; it also produces a kaleidoscope of shape and tone (reminiscent of stained-glass) which portrays the ever-present movement and energy found in nature.
This approach creates a painting which, like the landscape, is constantly changing. So, as you move around the room and the ridges of paint catch the light, there is always something new to see.
Hear about new work - before I post them on social media...
