I am a contemporary landscape painter living and practicing near Stroud in South West England.  Since childhood I have felt a sense of belonging with nature.  I grew up in The Fens and have a particular affinity with flatlands and seascapes.  My frequent travels have introduced me to many other types of landscapes – beautiful and wild, magical and sublime.

I paint in oils using an intuitive approach, exploring techniques and process.  I am interested in exploring  our innate connectivity to nature.  Some works reflect my unease about our disconnection caused by the alienating effects of urbanisation, rapid technological advance, and climate change.

I distill all these feelings of connection and disconnection into my work, seeking to represent landscape as both sublime, poetic and beautiful and also exploited and endangered.  I leave it to the viewer to see the landscape and perhaps beyond.


In 2004 I graduated from Bradford Art College with a Fine Art degree (BA first class hons).   

At college I won second prize in the Last Cawthra Feather undergraduate art competition.  Recently I took a year's professional development course at Newlyn School of Art.
