Lee Bay, North Devon. Oils on canvas. A small private beach with enormous rocks, beaten by the sea during winter months.

I STARTED PAINTING with relish in 2010. Now at every opportunity I have a paintbrush in my hand. Everything seems to demand exploration. Consequently content, size, technique and style are continually changing.

Hampton Lake. Oils on canvas. Bulrush seed heads in a gentle breeze.

 

 

INSPIRATION can happen at any time, anywhere. As a result paintings range from splodges to naturalistic landscape; from portraits to body forms; from complex compositions based on text to simple emotion expressed on canvas.                                                            Take a look at my website for current work.

Masai tribe in Kenya. Oil on canvas. The women’s clothes [shuka] were all brightly coloured and the men wore red for blood; the blood of the lion.

For some landscapes I’ve found the lightness of watercolours appealing. Especially those involving wooded areas, water and clouds. And although oils are my great love I do dabble in watercolours when a scene demands it.

Walk in the Spinney. Watercolour. The spinney is in Yaxley and is an oasis of peace and quiet situated beside St. Peter’s Church and surrounded by countryside.

The Girl with the Emerald earring. Oil on canvas. Grey floating frame.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During this year my focus has been on portraits inspired by Renaissance and Impressionism, and on landscapes.
