The inspiration for my work comes from walking in the mountains and remote areas of wilderness. Studies and sketches are made on location to capture the light and weather.I work from these studies and sketches in the studio, as they evolve into much larger pieces of work.

The dramatic monochrome pieces are worked in oils, I also use charcoal which I feel is very immediate and expressive, as well as using a variety of printmaking techniques.

Born in Yorkshire, I now live and work from my home studio in Staffordshire and gained a BA (Hons) in Fine Art from Staffordshire University. Complimentary to my artistic practice I also work as an artist in residence for Chase Aqua Rural Enterprise, providing creative support and artistic workshops to the local communities within Staffordshire and surrounding areas.

I exhibit widely and my work has been highly commended at the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists. My paintings are held in private collections and internationally.
