I’m a painter – landscape, old buildings, historic churches, in fact anything to do with our heritage and the land…
I like to work outdoors – en plein air – when I can. Using inks and oil pastels I work quickly trying to capture a ‘sense’ of the location. Back at the studio I like to work on a larger scale with acrylics on stretched canvas. Acrylics allow me to experiment with marks and textures whilst the quick drying time means I can work over the top of previous layers on the same day, if required. I like to work Alla Prima (wet into wet) and produce each piece in one attempt, if possible. However I will go back to add highlights or rework sections if necessary, but I certainly don’t spend hours and hours on each painting!
I am honoured to have had my work featured on many RedBubble groups, and I’m also very honoured that my paintings now hang in private collections throughout the world.
I am also very happy to assist appropriate charitable groups where I can – my paintings have helped raise funds for a number of groups in the UK, in their bid to save historic buildings or landscape for the benefit of the nation.
