      Artist Statement

      I work to my emotive response to landscapes, which are of poignant memories and experiences, climate change or natural phenomenon. I use colour to express an inner narrative by concentrating on recessive colours and experimenting with limited palettes while striving to retain equilibrium. I like to paint quickly at first, using brush and oil sticks, capturing the energy of an idea and then to add detail until I resolve the painting, following the its development and letting go of the original source material. I am a member of The Arborealists and ArtCan and exhibit regularly with them around the UK and Europe. My previous experience as a gallery manager has lead to my involvement with art fairs and exhibitions as a technician and event organiser.
