Having lived in Powys, Mid Wales since 2010, its amazing landscapes, woods, rivers and atmospheric skies are a constant source of inspiration. The natural world and landscapes make me marvel at the amazing creativity of God. I love colour and texture, and try to capture joy in my artwork.
I aim to sell artwork created using high quality materials, both paint and canvases. I give each piece the attention and effort required to produce a high quality picture that will give customers pleasure for years and will last well beyond my lifetime. I finish each artwork with a signature on the front and back of the canvas. Where pictures are unframed, the edges of the painting are painted so that the picture can be hung unframed.
Thoroughness is a hallmark of my work, as is my willingness to listen to those I trust and to make changes when something within a picture doesn’t quite work. This means that I will, even at a late stage, make drastic changes to a painting, in order to get it right. I appreciate that the background is as important as the foreground in creating a cohesive and well balanced picture. This means that paintings are created in a layered approach with each layer having time to dry before the next coat of paint is applied.

This website showcases work which is still available to buy. I hope you enjoy it. I’ve put an archive section to have somewhere to display other artwork in different media that I’ve done over the years- silk painting, willow lanterns, mosaic….
