My images are painted “en plein air” and from memory and sketches back in the studio. I capture fleeting moments exploring colour, texture and pattern to construct my images.
Inspiration comes from the world around me. My painting trips locally and further afield feed my images. I find solace in calm landscapes amongst the bustle of London life, whether it is a seascape with a horizon as far as the eye can see or the beautiful forms and colours inherent in the view in front of me. I hope to transport the viewer with me to another place.
Edge of Day
My most recent body of work explores that moment when as the light fades, the sky illuminates in the most incredible light show. These ever changing fleeting colour moments are my inspiration.
Here are some examples of my most recent pastel paintings inspired by North Norfolk and the countryside and parks in and around London.
Painted on metal leaf these illuminated landscapes are inspired by North Norfolk and London parks.
I use watercolour in my sketchbooks and as en plein air paintings – its a beautiful medium to work with and I am able to capture the changing light quickly in the scene before me.
I like to work all prima – often en plein air.
