I was born and brought up in rural South Wales and nature has always played a major role in my work. After studying art and design at Loughborough University, I taught design and silversmithing at secondary school for many years. I now paint full time.

Influenced by impressionism, I try to bring such elements as Seurat's pointillism and van Gogh's dynamic skies into my paintings. These I fill with movement, vitality, and of course, colour. Inspired by the beauty that is right on my doorstep, I enjoy working mostly in acrylics, as this medium allows me to produce richly coloured compositions which capture the light and movement which is ever present in the landscape. I have a passion for colour and I love to portray my natural environment as a slightly impressionistic, vibrantly coloured, atmospheric world. I have always been fascinated by pointillism and the way tiny marks of colour can be positioned in a painting to represent, sometimes very realistically, objects and scenes.

I love to use this technique in my work and utilise it to suggest movement in nature. It seems almost more appropriate in today’s world to use such techniques, as they mirror pixilation so well. I like that parts of my work can almost be described as a manual application of a digital concept. To combine this with more realistic painting techniques merges the two to create a style which accentuates the light and movement present in the way I see the natural world around me.
