Based in United Kingdom
I have been painting and drawing since childhood and have spent over 20 years working as a commercial artist. I currently work as a digital artist in the video game industry for Sheffield based Sumo Digital. Previously, I was employed as a freelance illustrator producing book covers and interior artwwork for books and publications in the UK, Europe and America. I am now interested in producing a body of work that is more expressive of my own interests and preoccupations. My work reflects a fascination for landscape and interactions between the land and shifting weather conditions. I attempt to convey a feeling of the passage of time and the vastness of the scenery by highlighting transient light effects and changing atmospheres in the scenery. Painted in oil on block canvas, my technique involves the extensive use of glazes and soft blends of colour to achieve a diffuse, subtle and moody depiction of the British countryside and the natural forms to be found within it.
