I am never happier than when I am either walking in the landscape or painting it.
I grew up in East Anglia as a member of a farming family and the love of the natural world that I developed as a child has grown stronger in me as the years have passed.
My paintings are not usually direct representations of a scene; they are mostly semi-abstract works that I use as a way of recording the aspect that remains uppermost in my memory. They evoke the sensation of a moment in time in a particular location. For me, they are more ‘real’ than a photograph.
I walk each day in the countryside around the Suffolk village in which I live. The familiar fields, woods, paths and animals find their way into the work. I watch the light move across the landscape or through the trees, continually changing the colours and the atmosphere.
I am fortunate enough to have been working as an artist for over twenty years. I exhibit at galleries around the UK and also undertake private commissions. My work has been published as both prints and greetings cards and has appeared in magazines such as World Of Interiors.
