My paintings are about experiencing and responding to the places I encounter. This is often achieved by spending periods of time in a landscape and looking and working directly from it. During the course of a painting many things change. First responses and ideas are superseded as I witness the landscape transforming under different lighting and weather conditions. Greater freedom and confidence grows with the time and experience spent in it. As I try to capture these elements, I do so in a way that allows paint and colour to be used in an expressive and gestural manner. My recent paintings reflect the changing qualities of light and weather and say something of the grandeur and beauty I experienced in the various places I visited.

I was born in Greenwich, London in 1964. I studied painting at St Martins School of Art, London and Winchester School of Art gaining a 1st Class Honours Degree in painting.

I now live and works in Dorset.UK
