I live and work in North Devon, UK.
This website is a selected collection of artwork from the last few years. I have chosen to focus on this particular body of work as it is reflective of my current practice.
Paintings and drawings are available to exhibit buy, and I can consider commissions.
I am currently working with oils, watercolour, charcoal, graphite and silverpoint.
These paintings and drawings are produced through a combination of observation and improvisation, with an interest in the technical qualities of the various materials. I am interested in memory and symbol, evocation of atmosphere and sensation, and the structural qualities of natural phenomena.
In the past I have also worked with and explored a variety of traditional and digital media (including web design, moving image and music / sound), in both fine art and graphic design contexts.
My other interests include gardening and permaculture; visual astronomy; rural folk magic; buddhism; and learning to ride horses.
