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. 
            

[caption id="attachment_4494" align="alignright" width="236"] Lee Bay, North Devon. Oils on canvas. A small private beach with enormous rocks, beaten by the sea during winter months.[/caption]

[caption id="attachment_6206" align="alignleft" width="396"] Naomi's Family. This painting was a commission and is a metre square. I thought about the characters in the family and matched flowers to each of them. For example, the delphinium, just left of centre represents a strong, upright member of the family whereas the red amarylis is a family member who is flamboyant and loves Christmas.[/caption]

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.

[caption id="attachment_6337" align="alignleft" width="404"] The Wave.  In Lee Bay, North Devon the waves crash against the rocks and opn the beach. Lying in the sea and looking along the wave, I saw an eye. This is my take on it.[/caption]

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="376"] Flood in Ferry Meadows.  In January 2018 Peterborough had downpours reminiscent of Mediterranean rain. The land in Ferry Meadows was completely covered in water. Amongst the trees I saw this fallen log. The light was blue/purple. It was a magical sight.[/caption]

           

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For some landscapes I've found the lightness of watercolours appealing especially subjects that include trees, water and clouds. 

[caption id="attachment_4496" align="alignright" width="177"] 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.[/caption]

Although oils are my great love I do dabble in watercolours when a scene demands it.

[caption id="attachment_4508" align="alignleft" width="231"] The Girl with the Emerald earring. Oil on canvas. Grey floating frame.[/caption]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

During this year my focus has been on portraits and landscapes. Both inspired by Renaissance artists and Impressionists.
