Based in United Kingdom
I am a contemporary artist producing vibrant colourful and highly textured original paintings. After studying fine art at Sheffield Hallam University, achieving a B A Hons (1st class) I subsequently lectured in colleges. I now practice full time as an artist from my studio in the Peak District.
Painting is a response to the beautiful landscape around me, the experience of being in the place is an important part of the process. When I paint trees and forest scenes I attempt to capture the ethereal quality of light filtering through the leaves. I hope to impart the sense of peace and meditative calm I feel in these quiet places, whilst conveying an unspoken conversation with nature.
