Primarily pastels and pastel pencils but other media used to produce paintings from nature, the landscape and still life.

Personal Statement

Making art and seeing art in all things is a way of life. A way of life which enriches and informs our perception and experience of life.

My work is influenced by a life long love of the colours, textures and unity of nature. When I paint a mouse I feel every little hair and underlying muscle with my eyes. A dish of fruit is tasted, smelled and caressed. A landscape is drunk in and becomes an expression of what I see and feel.

I work primarily in pastels and pastel pencils but experiment with watercolours, acrylics, inks and oils. Every medium has its own unique characteristics to bring to a subject.

 I hope my art will help others, in some small way, to experience the joy and inner peace I feel when making it.
