I am an artist based in the beautiful South East of the County of Dorset, an area known as the Isle of Purbeck. I used the opportunity of relocating to Corfe Castle, some years ago, to concentrate on developing my painting abilities in such glorious surroundings.
Pivotal to most of my work is my love of painting 'en plein air' predominantly with oil paints. This method of capturing the scene in situ and in all weather conditions (often the downside of it all!) offers the inspiration for more abstracted pieces in oil and mixed media completed back in my studio.
Central to all I produce is a love of colour and texture which is particularly evident in my pastel work.
