Local landscapes. Quiet and contemplative almost minimal. Various sizes. Oils, pastels, charcoal, collage. Poems, cards, books, prints.

After a many years as a part-time teacher I now make art full time.
Recently the quiet but fragile landscape of Chichester Harbour, the flood plain, and the remnants of mans interventions have become a fruitful source of inspiration - a place where life is played out. Nature at work. Nature on the edge.
Generally I work in my studio from sketches, written observations, memory and occasionally photographs.
Work can take time to evolve - days, months, even years - simplifying and abstracting to arrive at the point where the image corresponds to the inspiration. An equivalence.
Mainly I work in series, exploring variations in light, colour, movement, mark making and dynamic.
