I am an artist based in the South Downs near the Sussex coast. The beaches and countryside local to me are a constant source of inspiration, with the ever changing patterns, colours and light that the seasons bring.
As a student I was fortunate enough to study illustration at Falmouth College of Arts in Cornwall and painting has always been a passion of mine. However it’s only recently I have been able to devote more time to it. I work using acrylics on canvas, a medium that provides such versatility in texture, transparency and colour. I have always been influenced by the impressionists and their approach to capturing light on objects and landscapes and I would describe my artwork as contemporary realism with highlights of luminosity.
