I’m an expressive artist working out of Norfolk and the East Midlands. My inspirations come from nature and my emotional responses to life. Working largely from remembered emotions of real visual forms, the ideas are abstracted out in terms of colour and texture and transcribed into new form.

Generally, I work medium to large scale, although that changes with watercolour. I'm fascinated by the materials and process of painting, which is why I've studied most mediums. Each has its own personality and my work changes accordingly and that's exciting.

I’ve recently made Norfolk my permanent home by the sea. I have plenty of space to paint and the river Burn runs through my garden. My connections with the Midlands will continue.’
