Painting and creating images that inspire and grab the attention is now a happy obsession that has seeped into and colours most aspects of my life. I am self taught and I work full-time for the NHS as an Occupational Therapist, squeezing art into my evenings and weekends
My biggest source of inspiration is the natural and built environment whilst I am influenced by the realism genre. I revel in detail and recreating depth and perspective on canvas. My aim is to inspire curiosity in the viewer, to want to step into the landscape and see what lies around the corner or beyond the horizon.
I paint predominantly in oils as I find the versatility suits my style. I carry a camera with me at all times so I can capture images for potential future paintings wherever I am.
