  • Biography

    After 20 years working as a graphic designer and art director, I threw off the confines of the office job and started my new life as a landscape painter.

    I was raised in the countryside, the garden of my youth backing onto an old arboretum. Here I spent all seasons out playing, my imagination running riot and it was here that I developed my deep love of nature. As an adult I have maintained my need to connect with the wild places. The act of painting outside has become an integrated and therapeutic part of my life. I want my paintings to transport viewers away from the noise and busyness of modern life back into the enchantment of the spirited world.

    My paintings are fuelled by a desire to keep exploring and pushing my boundaries. 

    My paintings are a reaction against the clinical, formulaic world of digital images that surround us on the television and internet. Paintings for me, in this day and age are the antithesis of mass produced imagery. The painting should look painted, the brush marks and colours applied with a spontaneity, immediacy and expressiveness. The scenes imaginative, not reproduced form static photographs, but invested with a soul and originality.

    I'm an active participant in exhibitions in the UK and abroad. My paintings exhibited in the galleries and in the private collections around the world.

    Only the highest quality oil paints and materials are used in my works. After the paintings are finished, they are covered with a special varnish to protect them from the dust and direct sunlight. Paintings are extremely well packed in a cardboard box with a plastic foam and a protective cover for their fronts. Each painting is a single copy/no prints.
