Much of my working career was spent in the field of science & technology until a change of circumstances presented me with the opportunity to spend more time on the arts, allowing me to explore my creative side. However, I still retain a strong interest in the sciences and this is often reflected in the subject matter of my paintings.

Following a recent move to the south west I have been fortunate to have dedicated studio space and more available time to spend developing a new style of paintings, based on experimental techniques and the ‘found image’. Abstract in nature, the paintings are mostly inspired by the natural world or satellite imagery of the earth and space.

My work is based mainly on watercolour and other water-based media, portraying large subjects on a small scale, hence ‘paintings for small spaces’. I use carefully selected colour palettes and a mixture of media to create unique surface effects. The paintings are usually close-cropped resulting in a dramatic final image.

Occasionally reminiscent of photographic snapshots, some are dark and brooding, some serene and contemplative, and others are simply a celebration of colour on which to feast the eyes. Intricate in detail, they bear close scrutiny from the viewer.
