General picture

This gallery represents around the last ten years of my work - both sketching and more detailed paintings. My work uses both watercolour and acrylic as well as ink and pastel on occasions. I tend to work loosely to seek to obtain a more impressionistic structure and atmosphere to my paintings. The use of thick washes of watercolour and layering of varied tones of acrylics offers a particular unpredictability and vibrancy to my work whether landscape, life drawing or portraiture. I am particularly influenced by the work of the Scottish colourists artists such as Samuel Peploe and John Fergusson. and more contemporary landscape painters such as Peter Hicks, Peter Wileman, Steve Slimm and Heather Davies.

I live and work in the beautiful Yorkshire Wolds - a perfect place for exploring and experiencing the natural landscape.

I sell most of my work through exhibitions or commissions rather than from my website. But if you would like to discuss any particular piece then please contact me through my Facebook page (see link below) or send me an email on the contact page above.

As an indication of price my work sells for between £50 and £500..
