A Contemporary UK artist based in Lancashire whose main subject is Wildlife & Wild Places
Over the years my interest in wildlife/animals & the natural world has helped to develop and improve my artistic skills in this field. Using a painterly style to create works that show emotion and character in each animal I have painted.
More recently the focus of my practice has been on Wild Places..
My compositions are from memory using expressive gestural marks to build layers, texture, negative spaces and form. Intuitive mark making with palette knives and tools, using paints and mediums that are then manipulated until an image before emerges.
Echoes of places roamed, mountains hiked and nature explored, translated into a painting the viewer can connect with. A view with a sense of familiarity about it, a place they have been to or somewhere that reminds them of home.
I work from my home studio and my main studio within Creative Spin Studios at Leigh Spinners Mill, Leigh, Lancashire
