I work with a bold palette and a fluid style and,
striving to express my emotional response to the
land, sea and sky, I paint colourful energetic
My paintings are expressionistic in tone and inspired by the power and spirit of nature. In many of my paintings I use a knife with oils or acrylics and develop a thick impasto, working in layers and ridges of transparent and opaque colour.
Perspective and depth is developed in a semi abstract way using the countryside with its changing seasons as a constant reference. The sea, huge East Anglian skies and our diverse landscapes fascinate me.
Its the same inspiration that drives my art photography, with digital technology blurring the boundaries between painting and photography I produce both pure photography and my own style of arted up images.
I studied at Ipswich School of Art from 1977 to 1981, And here are just a few of my recent exhibitions
