“My work is a celebration of light filled moments revealed in rich and vibrant oil paint using my personal visual language of fresh and direct brushmarks. Painting en plein air is central to my practice but I am equally at home working from a model, still life or interior. I find beauty in the ordinary, mundane and intimate rather than the grand vista. Coastal locations, domestic interiors and gardens and allotments provide me with rich and endless subject material. My approach is one of simplicity and economy, striving to make every mark count in my earnest pursuance of capturing the poetry of a fleeting effect of light.”
Update summer 2021; As I write I'm looking forward to attending some lovely events which have been able to proceed this summer, such as the Broadway arts festival. I'm working hard to finish my second book and enjoying getting out and about again after the lockdowns.
I'm also delighted to announce that my brand new DVD 'Painting the light in oils' (APV films) will be available to purchase in the next few weeks, either as an actual DVD or via digital streaming which is such a convenient way to view these days. I hope you'll enjoy it!
Thank you as always for your support.
Stay safe and well, until we meet again xx
