Capturing the essence of a moment in nature with vibrant and expressive sea & landscape paintings. Contemporary garden studio, easy parking

My creative practice explores my response to the natural landscape drawing inspiration from this ever-changing environment. With an intuitive use of colour, I love to work in a variety of media, predominantly oils and watercolour, to express movement, light and reflections. Through gestural strokes of my palette knife, building layers and texture, I create vivid images that capture the essence of being within the landscape.

The sea and water is a dominant theme in my work, and I have been developing a body of work with a more abstract feel. To the viewer my paintings convey a fusion of vibrant colour with a feeling of sensitivity.

I am an Art & Design BA (Hons) graduate, a member of Cambridge Open Studios, and the . Selected paintings are available to purchase from  and , and also from my on-line shop on . My clients include both private and corporate collectors.

As well as producing my own collections of paintings I work on commissioned pieces too. For more information please visit my or to arrange an appointment.

This July 2017, I am exhibiting solo from my new contemporary garden studio, showing my latest collections of artworks.
