I have a passion for figurative work, painting portraits and animals. I find inspiration in all facets of creation; from character in a face, the beauty of a local beach or view across fields, a collection of everyday objects on a table to the changing skies and sunsets. In all my work, colour and light are key elements in creating work that aims to be uplifting and inspiring. My style is continually evolving and combines realism with expression in varying degrees. I now work mainly in oils, preferring their rich colours and ability to blend, creating many tones and textures.
