I work intuitively with colour and aim to communicate the powerful beauty of the land and the visual effect of light and weather upon it. I also have a strong interest in the history of a landscape - the stories within it. I often incorporate photographic and printed materials, as well as diferent types of paint application, to create a layered effect which reveals the depth and life of a landscape.

Although now primarily a painter I trained as a surface pattern designer and I still work at times in this field - it can feel stifling as a creative person to limit yourself to one channel of creativity. One discipline can feed the other. My sense of colour and mixed media style of working have stemmed from my work as a designer. I have also recently been experimenting with ceramics and print.

I have exhibited throughout Northern England and in London. I have also undertaken corporate and domestic commissions. I live and work in West Yorkshire.
