About

"My current work is inspired by the Southwest landscape. I often paint outdoors to capture the world around me.
I like to experience a place, to gather inspiration in situ and be immersed in a location. The colours seem more vivid, the marks more visceral when applied outdoors. I work with acrylics, oils and mixed media to make at times semi abstracted pieces. Through colour, mark making and surface I aim to make an immediate response to the world around me. My practice has developed alongside a career in Art and Design education, which I enjoy and have continued learning through showing others how to make art"
