The work exhibited represents a journey into landscape, history geography and the legacy of the past on the present. Any natural forming or reclaiming or the results of man leaving a mark.
I am obsessed with looking!
The landscape dominates, whether in the city, or countryside. I paint in any medium but prefer oils and watercolours, dabble in print-making and wax resist, love to draw. My frame of reference is not bound by the size of a canvas, I will draw my line as long as is necessary and as wide as the work requires. Structure, Tone, Light & Shadow basically rule, they motivate and guide how I look.
These influences feature in all my work. I hope you enjoy discovering my work, as much as I have, exploring the landscape of Italy and England in my work.
Italy has been a growing passion over the last four years. The art and history inspires, these can be seen here but also in Solo Exhibition “Inside Solo Magazine”, which serialized my book Italian Sketchbook.
