I am a professional artist and tutor, based in Mapledurham, South Oxfordshire. I paint a range of subjects, from portraits to buildings and street scenes, but currently am inspired by tree landscapes, the changing light and colours of seasons. I like to work expressively and make my brushmark work hard! I love working in acrylic because it allows me to be fluid and undisciplined, and I can build depth, colour and contrasts in layers. I am always experimenting and currently work a lot with metal leaf.
