I was born in Yorkshire but have spent the great majority of my adult life in South Africa. I am now based in a small town in South Norfolk, UK, where I have been since December 2012. I don’t intend to move away from here anytime soon. Norfolk is beautiful.
I have always been fascinated with the process of making a painting, the technicality of it, the nature of a painting’s surface and how texture is created. I used to think that I worked primarily with acrylics but I have expanded my repertoire and work with a variety of medium, ranging from soft pastels to encaustic wax paint. The process of making a painting is what’s important to me and I’m constantly on the look-out for a new material or tool to experiment with. As a result my work tends to flitter about between straight forward abstract landscape compositions to weird flowery things that have been requested by my patrons.
I am currently studying towards a BA (Hons) Painting through the Open University (University for the Creative Arts).
