Having experimented with Modernism within my undergraduate studies it was a move to Cumbria where my interest in the formal qualities of paint found a voice in seeking to represent the landscape around me. I consider living by the Kent Estuary in the north Lancashire and south Cumbria coastal borders to be my painting roots as my work was more and more influenced by the environment surrounding me. It was out of this I sought to capture something of the beauty - and not only of this unique landscape and the ever changing effects of light and weather - but whatever landscape I am surrounded by as I travel. I tend to work in series and the following are a selection.
