I spent my career as a teacher of young people and adults after graduating from the Central School of Art in London. I now share a garden studio with my son Will in which we benefit from working both together and independently!
I paint primarily in watercolour but also in acrylic and make paintings which are based on a composition of colour, shape and form. I use traditional techniques and as I work on them, my paintings evolve to finish in varying degrees of abstraction.
Subjects which currently interest me most include evocative landscapes and other natural and rural environments. I work primarily from source material in my sketchbooks and from photographs of a variety of landscape features. My abstracted compositions are designed to evoke an impression of a place or a regional landscape without necessarily being of a specific location.
