I have lived in Norfolk for eighteen years now and the beaches and big skies of the North Norfolk coast continue to inspire me and the desire to capture them on canvas, interpreting their drama and beauty is as strong as ever. My work is mainly oil on canvas or board which I find is the most expressive medium for the type of work I love to create. I also try to find time to mix into my work routine my love of wild life and find great satisfaction in producing pieces which feature native wild animals and birds, often as pencil sketches or impressionistic studies.
My newest interest is a venture into portrait painting and I’m looking forward to exploring this exciting area of art during 2021. Myself and my partner own The Staithe Gallery in Wells next the Sea, Norfolk, which acts as an ideal platform to sell my work and gives me the perfect excuse to pay regular visits to the beach! Commissions feature very strongly in my work routine, the interaction with the client is a very rewarding part of the process and I love creating treasured personal pieces of art for them, I am proud to have customers who have collected as many as a dozen pieces, bespoke and otherwise. Galleries also play an important role and currently I exhibit with galleries nationally and internationally as well as participating in solo and joint exhibitions with my partner.
