My paintings are a direct, painterly response to what is around me. It could be painting en plain air on a clifftop or with a bunch of flowers in a favourite jug in the studio.The paintings are full of energy, wonder and excitement. There is nothing too ‘clever’ or arty about them … just this hand, this brush, this paint.I’m really interested in the art and soul connection. Painting feeds my soul and soul work feeds my painting. When I work from a creatively authentic place my paintings become alive and poetic.
I run workshops exploring the Art and Soul Connection.
