My work evolves from drawing expeditions up the river in my canoe.  I love to observe how changing light, seasons and weather can completely alter the sense of a place and it is these shifts in mood that I endeavour to evoke in my work.

By working with light and space, I aim for  a sense of place to emerge, a suggestion of what it felt like to be there, rather than a description of a specific 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.
