My inspiration is taken from life and my classical training has given me a solid foundation for individual expression and style. In my figurative, portraiture and equine work, I aim to depict form with life-like portrayals that have depth, movement and expression. My study of the human form and knowledge of animal anatomy is an invaluable tool to help me portray personality and character with accurate drawing skill, something invaluable in commissioned work. In my landscapes work I try to capture the essence of the view, the changing light and seasons. There is freedom in land and seascape painting, walking out and taking inspiration from the ever changing views is completely liberating. Most of my work is taken directly from life as I believe it helps me to create more atmosphere in an altogether looser and impressionistic painting.
