I originally trained as a Civil Engineer but decided there were enough roads and bridges in the World and left to study art in 1990. I moved to a rural location in 1994 and gradually found my "voice" by being inspired by the landscape and artists such as Paul Nash, Eric Ravilious and Robert Tavener.
I had my first solo exhibition of paintings in 1999/2000.
In 2008 I took up printmaking and this now forms the main part of my practice
have always been inspired by the landscape and am particularly
drawn to ancient places that show marks and signs of earlier
cultures (standing stones, hill figures, dew ponds and track
ways) and try to capture a sense of my emotional connection
with a location.
