painting

 My landscape paintings are inspired by nature and the world I see around me.
Through experimental drawing and painting, working both from life and photographic references, I abstract and re-create these ‘slice-of-life’ scenes using vibrant colour and exaggerated lines and shapes. I work mainly in acrylic on canvas but freely add pastel, marker and collage elements when it feels right. My goal is not to copy nature but to paint a work that gives the viewer a visual experience of the familiar that is imaginative and engaging.
