I am a painter of expressive, gestural landscapes, which communicate an intense emotional response to the experience of being in the landscape.

The materiality and sensual qualities of oil paint are important elements of my process. I love the way paint is simultaneously itself, essentially coloured mud, while also somehow evoking the space and light of the landscape. For me, light is a crucial aspect of the emotional impact of the painting. I am hugely influenced by the English landscape tradition, particularly Constable and Turner. Other important influences include Joan Eardley and Peter Lanyon, as well as American abstract expressionist artists Willem de Kooning and Joan Mitchell. I live and work in Kent, UK.

My drawings, made in the landscape, are used in the studio as starting points for a way of painting which is exploratory and intuitive – the painting develops through an almost unconscious process.
I am a member of the New English Art Club and of the Royal West of England Academy, and have a degree and a Masters qualification in Fine Art. I have work in many private collections and have shown in open submission exhibitions including the Royal Academy Summer Show, the Threadneedle Prize, the Lynn Painter-Stainer Prize, and the Discerning Eye.

I occasionally teach classes and workshops in the UK, plus there’s an ongoing online course, which you can find out about in News and Events. To stay up to date, sign up for my newsletters or follow me on Instagram and Facebook.
