My work is based around elements of landscape, seascape, colour and mark making. I live in Oxfordshire and am surrounded by expansive skies and space with the beautiful Cotswold landscape near by and I love it. However, I grew up by the coast and I love everything about being near the sea so I regularly go to favourite destinations, usually Devon and Cornwall, to draw and paint the sea and coastline. When I come back to my studio I then have a collection of drawings, marks, colours and shapes which help remind me of the experience of being there. These then become further drawings in pastel or paintings and collages which take on abstract elements and are sometimes metaphorical.
I work small and large and I like to have several pieces on the go simultaneously.
