.....I am a painter living in Dorset, where I have my Studio.   The inspiration for my paintings begins with observing the shapes and colours of everyday or unusual objects, as well as watching the changing structure of light, or a compelling view.  I often work plein-air, on the Dorset beaches or countryside, or spend time drawing and painting further afield, in the wilder parts of Scotland, particularly the breathtaking Outer Hebrides, or the beautiful Cornish coast.




I draw in charcoal, or paint in oil where I experiment with colour during the planning of my paintings.  My work is either abstract, or strives to capture the likeness or atmosphere of an object or place, without precision, but with the aim of emphasising light, colour and space..
