I studied Fine Art at the University of Plymouth, gaining a BA (Hons) in 2000. Much of the inspiration for my work comes from exploring the local area. My paintings are a celebration of the moment with enjoyment of the process a key ingredient. Boats, trees, birds and buildings are frequent motifs. Working mostly in acrylics, I begin with a vibrant, mid toned ground and build layers of paint creating the illusion of depth without obvious texture; traces of ground remain unifying the painting as a whole.
