Long Description

Having lived on the edge of Exmoor for much of my life, I have an innate connection with wild and untouched places. I work with an intuitive approach, exploring the paint with the use of a palette knife, scraping, splattering and scratching to create impressionistic landscapes. I am fascinated by the division between abstraction and realism and it is this elusive place that I strive for in my work. Each painting is an experiment with gestural marks and colour themes, that evolves, I hope, into an evocative image. My aim is to reach beyond visual representation and capture the spirit of a place, so that the viewer may engage with the work and just for a moment be taken there.
