I have been painting for the last 10 years and printing for 5 years, after a professional life as a graphic designer.

No matter how my subject matter changes, I always return to land and seascapes and particularly the spaces where they meet - the edge of things.The images develop from sketches done in situ, photos, found objects and the memories of those experiences. The images are often quite heavily textured - the layering of the paint echoing the layering of the land, the history and what lies beneath.

Another strand to my work is recording the slow ravages of time on an ageing population through access to relatives and their care environments. See more in 'Ageing'
