Pushing my images of our landscape to impressionism, while keeping them recognisable to the viewer, is a challenge I enjoy.

The researching before choosing a subject, the understanding what makes that particular landmark so known – all add addition layers of knowledge which develop the image.

I am self-taught. My development as an artist has been greatly advanced by being a member of several art groups where my work was critiqued by my peers.

I work in acrylics on stretched canvas and welcome commissions from those with specific requests.

For me, a blank canvas is rather like a blank page - a little scary, but once the journey begins I know there will always be that moment of excitement during the process that energises me! That moment when two colours ‘work’ or a shape materialises from the colours to enhance the whole! That’s the fix for me!

I love that others want to hang my images!
