  • Biography
    I am a British artist living and working in Washington DC.  The main focus of my work is colour and light.  I paint landscapes, still-life and abstracts - subjects which allow me to explore these elements.  I paint exclusively in oil and work "alla prima" painting freehand straight on to the canvas with no preliminary drawing.  I like the spontaneity of this method, the tactile qualities and texture of this medium.  

    My paintings sell widely both in the UK and overseas, including Europe, the US, Australia and the Far East.  In 2018 I was commissioned by the Belmond Cadogan Hotel in London to paint twelve supersize abstract pictures for their luxury suites.  I often work to commission and enjoy working to a brief, if you are interested in discussing an idea for a painting then please message me through Artfinder.

Biography

I am a British artist living and working in Washington DC.  The main focus of my work is colour and light.  I paint landscapes, still-life and abstracts - subjects which allow me to explore these elements.  I paint exclusively in oil and work "alla prima" painting freehand straight on to the canvas with no preliminary drawing.  I like the spontaneity of this method, the tactile qualities and texture of this medium.  

My paintings sell widely both in the UK and overseas, including Europe, the US, Australia and the Far East.  In 2018 I was commissioned by the Belmond Cadogan Hotel in London to paint twelve supersize abstract pictures for their luxury suites.  I often work to commission and enjoy working to a brief, if you are interested in discussing an idea for a painting then please message me through Artfinder.
