My paintings are all about being outdoors, on the spot and capturing the atmosphere so I mostly paint on location. I am very much drawn to coastal places but also enjoy landscapes. I usually paint each piece in one sitting and that is what I frame. The paintings are worked quickly in acrylic paint using palette knives, and brushes. Whilst the subjects are recognisable, the spontaneity of the work captures the essence of the moment. I like to extract just enough information to make the painting something you can recognise.
I have done much of my work on the Isle of Wight but also enjoy enjoy travelling to other locations. Most recently spending time in Tuscany and the West Coast of Scotland. On my travels I also like enjoy working in sketchbooks with pen and watercolour and I produce limited edition prints from these.
