“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.”

These two marine paintings have been gracing the walls of my studio for far too long, and they need to go to a home to be loved and appreciated. They are both already framed, and so will arrive framed for any buyer in the UK. For any collector outside of the UK I'm afraid they are a bit large to send framed so I'll need to remove the frames before sending. Still an amazing price though for these two lovely big plein air paintings!
