I have a real passion for painting the local landscape, the views and vistas in and around Harpenden are my inspiration.
I use bright vivid colour and expressive impasto textures to try and capture the essence of a particular landscape. The Nickey Line, The Avenue of Lime Trees in Rothhamsted Park, The Southdown Ponds and Harpenden Common are my main sources of inspiration. I am fascinated by the changing seasons and how these affect the colours and moods of paintings. My technique and approach to painting has been influenced by a number of artists over the years, I admire Pissarro and Sisley in terms of their compositional themes, along with Henri Mattise and the Fauves with the vivid and exciting use of colour in their palette. I have had a series of exhibitions and one-man shows in London and the home counties, while my work has been exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts in London and it is also represented in private collections in the USA, the Far East, South Africa and Europe.
