A keen painter, mainly in oils, I'm a self-representing artist living in Derbyshire, on the edge of the English Peak District. My work tends to be intuitive, improvised, often textural and tonally variegated, perhaps reflecting the wonderful limestone and woodland environment I grew up in and currently inhabit.
I paint using a variety of techniques eg knife, brush, direct hands-on, glazing, impasto or sgraffito, often in a layered process to achieve richness and depth.
I'm fascinated by the idea of borderlands between abstraction and figuration. I love exploring the ways that memories of places can gently manifest in the alchemic mess of pigment…
