I enjoy painting landscapes and seascapes that play with form and formlessness. I aim to create scenes that feel half-remembered, at once familiar but also dream-like.
In my art I experiment with the boundaries between the real and the imagined, creating scenes that seem both familiar and yet distant.
While many of my paintings are inspired by real places I rarely paint specific locations, instead preferring intuitive and meditative painting methods to paint through pure, direct creative expression.
Some of the most rewarding and exciting feedback I’ve received from clients and visitors is that viewing a painting feels like grasping at a memory.
I take inspiration from my walks and camps in nature. Stormy weather and the Welsh coast as well as the hills and patchwork fields surrounding my home in West Yorkshire are particularly close to my heart.
I apply paints in some non-traditional ways using unconventional tools and thick watercolour paints with the goal of creating striking scenes that have movement, drama and mystery.
My process is never fixed and I’m always on the lookout for changes and additions that I can make through new tools, methods or mindsets. For that reason, I also enjoy documenting my art and enjoy making videos exploring the creative process through a lens of meditation and flow states.
