Painter in Oils primarily, although I have extensive experience of using acrylics and watercolour. I also use collage a lot for smaller studies and occasionally in my larger paintings. I also like to use oil stick with conventional oil paint.
I draw inspiration from the perception of the world around me, from nature as well as the urban environment. I have made work throughout my career which is based upon my observations of the natural world, for example water, cloud, seascapes, hills and mountains but latterly have focussed more on the experience of moving through an ever-changing urban environment, specifically Berlin, Copenhagen and Newcastle. I also take inspiration from written texts, for example the poetry of Seamus Heaney or TS Eliot.
