My work evolves from drawing expeditions outon the river, the beach or the landscape; in all seasons and weather conditions.  I love how changing light, seasons and weather can completely alter the sense of a place and it is these shifts in mood that I explore through the play of colour and light. The elements and the weather play an enormous part in my work and I try to evoke a sense of these changes.

My working processes  allow a sense of place to emerge, a suggestion of what it felt like to be there, rather than a specific description of a setting: I never really know what my paintings will look like until they reveal themselves. 

I went to St Martins School of Art in London where I learned to paint and graduated with a BA hons 2.1  Fine Art degree and then continued at Brighton Art School to do an MA in Fine Art and a PGCE.
