I am a colourist and like to paint vibrant, dynamic work that aims to create an emotional connection. I enjoy the beauty of nature in all its glory and aim to capture moments of time, place, energy and colour that resonate with me. Many of these moments come to me in the most remote and peaceful parts of the British Isles where nature is displayed in its full rugged beauty.

My art is generally not a true representation of reality as I paint primarily to express this feeling or to re-create a visual that I have in my mind's eye. I paint from within and also from photos which I have taken. My current inspiration comes from both the UK countryside and intuitive/expressive painting connected to colour and emotion.

I am both an Artist and a Coach and I have been painting for 14 years starting with watercolours and moving into exploring acrylics and most recently oils. I enjoy working in all mediums and like to experiment with different textures, mediums and styles.
