My lively gestural painting style enables me to convey an impression of a subject which is rooted in reality but not bound by it. I create instinctively: colours and shapes flow with an energy of their own. I paint with my hands, layering acrylic and then scraping and wiping away to leave remnants of colour behind. A piece can take months to finish due to the painting, wiping and overpainting of glazes and marks. I often rotate the canvas as I paint, so that the piece can have no fixed orientation, it is up to the viewer to choose.

I work from my garden studio which is my go to creative space.
