Influenced by the surrounding Wiltshire landscape, I work in both oils and watercolours with an illustrative approach to both mediums in a variety of styles from loose abstract to photo-realism working in rich colours with sensitive mark making.

Recent works in oil on canvas using a rich impasto colour application and by the sole use of a pallet knife, has led to a collection of works that venture into suggestions of landscape with additional elements of nature - ‘geometric abstraction’.

Each piece, though initially planned, takes on an organic flow of its own which can direct the work in a totally different direction dependent upon the results.
