Through print, paint and mixed media, my work considers aspects of landscape
Working across a range of media, I combine imagery from personal experience, observation and memory as well as utilising photography and digital mapping tools. Sometimes in these landscapes things are not quite what they seem at first glance. A red sun might just be a nuclear reactor viewed from above, and distant trees in a forest may be grooves on the corrugated sheds of the local business park. I believe that art can be found anywhere and is for everyone.
My childhood was spent in the north east of England, on the edge of a town with a factory and industrial units at the end of the street. Having freedom to wander the local countryside gave me an acute appreciation of urban, suburban and rural landscapes and the different value placed on each.
I also offer highly regarded and popular workshops, both face-to-face and online, in a range of art media and techniques.
After a Graphic Design degree in Bristol I studied MA Illustration at the Royal College of Art, graduating with distinction. I am based in Mid Sussex.
