Degree: Degree in Fine Art Painting (1st Class)
University: Canterbury Christ Church University
My recent work is focused heavily on observation painting, from landscapes, still life and portraits.
My paintings are built up in a number of ways: usually it depends on the subject matter. Many comment on the different styles and techniques apparent in my portfolio. I try not to be too conscious of style and technique, instead I allow each image to take on a life of its own.
I trained at Canterbury, Christ Church under the strong influence of the Euston Road Painters; especially influential was the late, great British Artist Ewan Uglow. My biggest influence it nature.
There have been occasions when I do work from memory and imagination but always return to nature as I find it so rich and endlessly fascinating.
