I’m a Cheltenham based figurative artist. I paint what I enjoy, what's around me and things I know. I endeavour to create work that is a response to a place or a moment – partly from memory, partly from the sketches that I make on location and partly from source material, combining these together for a finished composition. I continuously draw and make sketches from life and from varied references.
I predominately work in acrylic and love the versatility of this medium. I try to balance colour and form – contrasting delicate marks with bold brushwork and flat areas of colour. I continue to draw marks into the painting so each work has a history of mark making.
I have been described as a painters’ painter, I think this means that there is intrinsic beauty in the mark making and composition – a process I use to get the essence, both movement and stillness, of a subject matter.
At the moment I'm concentrating on work based upon the coast.
By Appointment only.
