I am a Suffolk based painter and printmaker. I exhibit widely in the UK and my work is held in public, corporate and private collections worldwide.
My origins are in the Fens, the wider East Anglian landscape means a great deal to me in terms of space, the horizon and also sky/water/land relationships.
In all its shifting, beguiling and quiet forms this is my most powerful inspiration.
My work is characterised by a strong sense of place, a fine balance of abstraction and representation, by exploration of colour, vibrant mark making, texture and rhythm.
Inspiration comes from direct and repeated observation of the landscape; both intimate and distant, then mediated through complex layering techniques in the studio using a 1940’s offset litho press. It is in the spirit of quiet contemplation.
I hope this spirit will infiltrate the final pieces and create space and places to be lingered within and slowly journeyed through.
