My art work is inspired by local landscape, the changing seasons and the time of day. I use pastels and paints to capture the ways in which colour and light transform the everyday view into something beautiful.
I am fascinated with the way in which colours sit together, pushing forward and pulling back, altering atmosphere, understanding and the way in which we view the world.
Although my favoured medium is pastel I love to explore the effects of paints and mixed media on different surfaces. I am inspired by nature, the landscape and rugged coastline of North East England and the tranquility of our countryside.
My work is sold privately and through local art shows and festivals. I accept commissions and teach art in my studio and around the North East.
I am happy to plan personalised learning and bespoke individual or group sessions on request.
