Since completing my Fine Art Painting degree in Leicester, I have continued to sketch & paint, exhibiting regularly in both solo & group exhibitions including having work selected & exhibited for the National Open Art exhibition & Community Arts exhibitions at Pallant House Gallery.
For some time, my work has been based almost exclusively on the landscape, inspired by travels to Greece, France & more recently the Sussex down land & coastline, as well as by the vibrant watercolours of Raoul Dufy, Paul Klee & the beautiful semi-abstract work of contemporary Dutch artist Kees Van Aalst. The paintings often begin as small sketches becoming semi-abstract as they develop encouraging the viewer to form their own interpretation.
I also run Creative Art Workshops in Arundel exploring & experimenting with a variety of water-based media & techniques in a relaxed & friendly environment.
