Artist

I am a self-taught artist based in the beautiful Peak District and love expressing myself by drawing, painting, creating and experimenting.

 

My abstract work is inspired by my observations of the world - colours within a sunset or the textures and light within the countryside, and also from emotions that past and present experiences provoke.  I'm currently experimenting with techniques of paint application which is fun and challenging. I take my sketchbook everywhere and work occasionally from this or photographs taken on my phone, but mostly from memory.  

 

The lovely models, who appear in my drawing and collage work, come from a local life-drawing class I attend. It was here that, as well as practicing traditional drawing techniques, I started creating collages, to experiment with newspaper and magazines to practice tone and texture.
