About me

Age 47 and have lived in Wotton-under-Edge for 43 years. I trained as an architect at South Bank University, London. Part time artist, designer and professional builder. My passion for landscape art formed during numerous walking experiences throughout the UK and especially the Cotswold Escarpment which I know intimately. Influenced by the French impressionist movement and the Hudson school of art, I sketch in the landscape and finish from collected photos from which I hope to capture a unique moment in time from an ever-changing landscape, to convey the elemental and the un-tame in otherwise familiar scenes.

The landscape provides a stage or scene waiting for an element to act or react within or from it. The interaction of light, season, form and colour continuously play out within the landscape and capturing that particular moment is the inspiration behind my work. Emphasis in detailing the individual elements and components that collectively make a landscape is a key objective and by way of detail I hope to present an appreciation of nature and of our countryside for myself and everyone to enjoy.
