Westbury,  Wiltshire

I primarily work in acrylics on canvas and board. I start with a vibrant sky and develop the rest. I'm inspired by the photos i take both at home and abroad and once back in the studio i use them to create my pieces of work.

Orignally born in Birmingham but spent my childhood and school days at Shapwick & Edington School situated in Somerset on the delightful Somerset levels, near to the coast, the Mendips, Quantocks and Exmoor. This is where the sceanery and landscapes around me inspired me to follow my passion in art.

I am inspired by colour, light and texture whether it's in a landscape or a building the world around me inspires me. I like to take the viewer on a journey. I am predominatley known for my landscapes but i am a trained illustrator too and i think that comes through in my work, a story telling aspect.

Iam greatly inspired by the works of N.C and Andrew Wyeth as well as Anthony Green R.A. These artists are a combination of landscape, narrative and illustrators which i think over the years has influenced my work.

I enjoy taking part annually at the Reading and Windsor Contemporary Artshows and have enjoyed success in selling both at home and USA via my website and facebook page.
