July Open Studios
I think of my expressive and abstract paintings as found landscapes and as visual journeys. They evolve on the canvas and the focus of the paintings gradually comes into view.
I attempt to create in my paintings a similar experience to an unfamiliar landscape being looked at for the first time, an uncertainty of what lies ahead, the puzzle that we undertake in trying to identify what belongs to the sky, what is the sea, what is the land and at what point they all meet. I welcome accident and ambiguity in my paintings. This active consideration of the paintings illusion to space, keeps it alive and active and being open to reinterpretation.
I love the Uk coast and especially drawn to the endless beaches of the Norfolk coast that at low tide reflect the huge skies in its wet sand and pools. its beaches are like massive canvases painted on by the clouds and the sea.
I was born in Cornwall, brought up in Devon, studied in London graduating from Chelsea School of art in 1991 with a BA (Hons) in Sculpture, I now paint, preferring its intimacy and immediacy of expression. I have exhibit nationally and my studio is aboard my narrowboat on the River Great Ouse.
