Contemporary art inspired by nature

ABOUT

I am an artist based in the beautiful Chiltern hills in South Oxfordshire UK. 

 

I am enchanted by nature - from the microscopic to the magnificent and everything in-between.!

 

My art reflects this passion and explores ways to portray the exquisite detail of colours forms and elements of landscapes that are unique to particular places. 

My paintings are often semi-abstracted in which animal and plant forms can often be found.  Sometimes I stray into complete abstraction when trying to capture a particular feeling about a place.  

 

I use mainly acrylics on canvas, wooden board and paper. My works are usually multi-layered and my process involves covering and uncovering lower layers to reveal glimpses of colours, forms and textures. I use charcoal, graphite, inks and collage and occasionally oil paints and oil pastels.

 

I am a keen walker, mountain biker and rock climber.  These activities have taken me to wild and magical places all over the UK and abroad.  I try to capture in my art the sense of freedom and joy I feel in these surroundings.

I have always been a naturalist who loved to draw and paint.  I originally trained as a veterinary scientist to PhD level and am now able to combine both passions.  My artistic study has included working with Caroline Hulse FRA, Ashley Hanson, Lewis Noble and Alice Sheridan. I completed the Creative Visionary Programme with Nicholas Wilton in 2019.
