Artist's description

My work is a response to my surroundings.  The Sussex coastline with its port, groynes and beaches peppered with wind turbines constantly feed me with a wealth of inspiration.  I continue to be captivated by the sky, its colour, texture and movement are my biggest stimulus.

Paintings evolve and emerge in response to the landscape. Each painting tells a story, capturing a moment in time, each marks, drip and smudge adding to the works narrative. 

Drawing inspiration from my local environment, I work intuitively, building up and layering paint, often scraping back to expose hints or memories of previous marks.  I enjoy the depth subtle washes of colour provide, adding to the history of the canvas and reflecting our ever-changing landscape.
