I was inspired to become an artist when I realised I needed to express in some way what I saw, because simply seeing wasn’t enough for me.
I studied Fine Art at Bath Academy of Art in the 70’s and have applied myself ever since, striving to maximise on my skills and push the boundaries of my own thinking.
My work aims to powerfully evocative of the light and beauty which is seen in our landscapes and capture the beauty of landscape driven by my strong emotional response to it. I am as much inspired by the process of painting as I am by the subject matter and seek through this medium to present the viewer with the opportunity to write their own story within it.
Twice winner of the Singer and Friedlander Art award in 1989 and 1991, I have a long and successful history of buyers and collectors of my work in the Isle of Man, and I would like collectors to take away a sense of wonder and tranquility and an opportunity to consider deeper things hidden within the work.
