About 

I am a figurative oil painter and like to work outside directly from the landscape as much as possible. I aim to capture a feeling of the place as well as a recognisable representation and I love it when my work invokes memories for people of places of particular value to them. 

I have drawn and painted from a young age but studied more formally at The Art Academy, London between 2010 and 2012.  The tutors there inspired in me a love of painting directly from life whether that be from a still-life, model or the landscape and that is what I have been dedicated to doing ever since.  I grew to love the additional challenges painting outside presents through all seasons and weather conditions. 

I love to explore and journey, and have an interest in how land changes over time as people engage with it in different ways. Over the last few years I have undertaken several longer painting journeys including- The River Thames from source to estuary, the Jurassic Coastline from Exmouth to Studland Bay, and the Pilgrims Way from London to Canterbury. These trips have provided me with a way of combining my passion for painting with a love of observational writing. 

I am currently based in Cumbria where I am finding exploring the valleys and fells of the Northern Lakes an endless source of inspiration.
