I am a watercolour and mixed media artist living and working in Wiltshire and Somerset. My work reflects my personal interest in the natural world - its history - the imprint of man on the landscape and the transience of nature. The inspiration for landscape painting comes from walking the lanes and byways around my home and from travels further afield throughout Europe. I love the English garden and my floral images arise from happy hours spent sitting amongst the flowers.
I use watercolour and inks on paper in a loose expressive style and apply layers of pastel, oil and other materials to add texture, marks and heightened colour.
I am particularly interested in capturing the emotional response that accompanies being present in the landscape.Through experimentation, reflection and exploration I aim to capture these special moments.
