The focus of my work is nature and the natural world and increasingly I am focusing on landscapes that are immediately local to my home in rural Hampshire. The changing moods of a landscape, and the feelings that they evoke are key themes in my painting. Having previously painted in acrylics, I am currently exploring a different media, moving into oil painting. I am enjoying the richness of colour and the texture and malleability of the oil paints. I typically paint with a limited colour palette (sometimes in monochrome) with the aim of capturing different lights and moods.
I find inspiration in the landscapes of rural Hampshire and the changing moods of the sea also intrigue and inspire me. West Wittering and Climping beaches feature in my work, as does the Cornish coastline, and the windswept Atlantic coast of south west Spain. In my seascapes, as with my landscapes, I am interested in the dynamic between what is solid, enduring, and unchanging, versus the moment by moment changes in light, atmosphere, and mood.
