Originally from South Wales, I am a self taught painter, with a degree in Creative Practices.
Inspiration is literally on my doorstep. I work from my garden studio on the edge of the wild upland moors of West Penwith.
I do a lot of walking, to find special places so I am never without images and ideas. Back home in my studio the invention begins. My boards and canvases are already primed and stained. Real elements mixed with remembered images and ideas. I paint thickly or just build up layers with thin washes. I use acrylic and oil. My aim is to create a ‘satisfying balance of shapes. Abstract forms appear. A figure intrudes, leading to a hidden narrative that’s purely up to the viewer.
‘A mix of abstract and referential forms in acrylic and oil inspired by the wild edges of West Penwith.’
