Abstract Painter. Mark maker. Inspired by the energy and rhythm of the natural world. I paint to be free and to follow my instincts; so my work is impulsive and intuitive; felt rather than observed. My process is introspective and at its heart is escape, reflection and solitude; themes which recur alongside the physical landscape in my work. Work is often triggered by the heaths and woodlands of North West Surrey; an area that I know well, having grown up here and returned after University and years of working abroad in 1999. I mostly work in mixed media on paper, but larger works are on canvas.
