I am a contemporary artist and exhibit in Devon, Dorset and Cornwall.  Inspired by the sublime beauty and power of the Devon landscape,  I am particularly drawn to water and can often be found sketching on local beaches and rivers. Back in my studio I immerse myself in the process of painting, clinging to memories of light, contour and movement, creating an emotional response to these places.  I use conventional and innovative techniques in my painting, often burning surfaces and embedding papers to create very textural surfaces but sometimes simply paint and many layers of washes and glazes.I am an admirer of Turner’s atmospheric paintings, Anselm Kieffer’s heavily textured works and find Joan Eardley’s works inspirational.
