I am an artist living in the flat fenlands of Ely in Cambridgeshire. I am particularly drawn to moody skies over land and sea, painting from walks in the fen at Sutton Gault as well as visits to the East Anglian coastline. Each Spring I travel alone to Holy Island, Northumberland to sketch and paint.
I work in oils on board using cardboard, brushes and knives to achieve the layering and texture which interests me. I also work in gouache on heavy paper textured with gesso. This allows me to build up an interesting, multi-layered surface from the initial plein-air sketch to explore further in the studio.
Each year in July, you can visit my workspace as part of the Cambridge Open Studios.
All of the works on my site are available for purchase except for archived items. Some of the paintings you will find in my shop ready to go. If the painting you are interested in isn't listed in the shop, please email me for details and how to buy.
Thank you very much for visiting my site.
