My art is inspired by connecting to the natural world , on an energetic, psychological and physical basis. I aim to capture the atmosphere and light of my subject by direct and impulsive painting.. I am primarily a 'plein air painter' and find working directly from life in situ enables me to connect and immerse myself with my subject. I am always interested in 'mark making', the marriage of close observation and simplification and the physicality of my medium in order to convey atmosphere and expression. This can take my work towards abstraction and also back towards realism - it is the thread between these two states that really intrigues me.
A very experienced tutor (PGCE) I am available for tuition in the form of weekly art classes, 1:1 and for workshops indoors and outdoors’ ‘en plein air’.
