About the Artist

A brief summary:

  • at present drawing, painting and making, and revelling in the freedom to enjoy and explore art for its own sake.

 

How I work:

With notebook and camera, or increasingly an i-pad, I try to capture what strikes me about a scene. I enjoy sketching on the spot, but prefer to bring ideas back to the studio and work there from my sketches and photographic reference.

 

Current interests:

Paper cutting - using line work, precision and other graphic design skills.

Painting - it's important not to limit oneself to tight detail, and I aim to work freely, using loose brushwork and thick paint to create images that are strong, lively and colourful. At present I'm enjoying exploring mixed media in a series inspired by a visit to Fuerteventura, with its stark landscapes and varied cactuses.

Assemblages of words and objects - using my own lettering designs hand cut from paper, plus found objects including pebbles and local Thames Valley flints.

Cards - many of my works are available as greetings cards.
