Biography

I originally studied Graphic Design at Kingston and spent 30 years running my own design
agency in London, before revisiting the printmaking and painting I so loved at art college;
experimenting with different textures and mark-making by working directly onto plaster,
wood and natural materials.

My design background informs and influences all my work, from a love of composition and
visual space to the energy and freedom of abstract line work.  I work intuitively, seeing more when I’m not focused on the detail with a variety of mixedmedia on plaster and wood that capture the experience rather than the reality of each landscape. Each painting explores the simplification of pattern, space, colour and texture from the places I have visited. Some of these are specific to landscapes around my studio in
Surrey, the South Downs and Devon but mostly they are a visual amalgamation of
memories and feelings from one or many places. Tapestry-like landscapes with bold
monotone blocks which reflect the shadowy-shape of evergreen trees against more open
hills and meadows.

I can be found painting most days in my studio by The River Thames in Shepperton.
