Oil on panel – 80 x 90cm + frame
BORN: 1976, Somerset. EDUCATION: Edinburgh and Cheltenham, BA Fine Art
Paintings are produced in oil on wood panel where the subtle grain can play an important part in the surface of the painting. Layered textures and glazes and a limited palette are balanced with fine graphic details that are often repeated across the work, emanating a sense of calm. We are drawn into the landscape by a human element, figure or building, creating narrative and intrigue.
“My surroundings often provide the starting point for my work. This could be a visit to an area of outstanding natural beauty, woodland and alpine forests having a significant influence, along with the landscape of south Somerset, where I live and work. My memories of my childhood also have a strong influence on my work, conveying a sense of nostalgia.”
