Artist's Statement

Living in North Devon and being lucky enough to work as an artist every day I take my inspiration from painters from the past who have a darker and symbolic take on life.  Around me I use trees, woods, ruined buildings being overtaken by nature and forests where there may be a slight air of menace in the air, a feeling that the past is still caught there and other people have worked the landscape.  I love detail, dark tones and shadows.
Recent work has also included lino cuts and life drawing days.

I am an exhibiting member of The Westward Ho! and Bideford Art Society and an academician with the South West Academy (SWAc).
