"Moving on from paintings inspired by coastal living, I have progressed into painting enlarged 'macro' environments, to unlock the unseen beauty of what is beneath our feet, objects often viewed as eyesores become a cacophony of colour and composition."
"I am a figurative artist, based in Ipswich, Suffolk, where I make expressive paintings and portraits full of nuances of light, colour and atmosphere. I work mainly in oil on canvas, in an impasto, highly textured style."
"My painting is a direct response to the thing seen and the experience of the real and visible world. It’s about the paint tangled up in the image combined with a strong underlying two-dimensional design, and a fascination with light, colour and mood."
"My work is inspired by the countryside, arable fields, trees, and the sky, it's energy, movement, beauty and spirituality. It is an interaction between the landscape and me."
"I try to bring my knowledge of the environment in to the work I produce, documenting the landscape around us and representing it in my own style."
