The recent winner of Dorset Magazines Landscape Artist of the Year 2016
self-taught work focuses on the wild spaces of Southwest England. He is
intrigued by the varied coastlines, ever changing moors and constantly evolving
woodlands. The drama in the relationships between the sea, land and sky provide
a never ending source of inspiration. His work tries to capture these sometimes
intimate, sometimes powerful moments that could otherwise be missed. Having
lived in Cornwall, Dorset and Somerset his work is born out of a response to
these special places.
He employs oil paints in varying ways, sometimes applied thinly in washes,
sometimes thickly in an impasto style with brushes and knives. He believes it is important to have a direct
connection to the subject and, as such, works both on site and in the studio to
create his art. Each piece is approached individually; the paintings evolve and
take different journeys. Some are finished in one sitting; others require more
thought and can change many times before they reach their end state.
He accepts commissions, if you would like to discuss your ideas you will find the details on the contact page.
