Since graduating I have continually challenged my work and practice, and set expressive goals for myself; usually this is about conveying feeling to the viewer. I use abstraction as a medium for this, and I am particularly interested in mark making; how this affects the viewer.
Abstract art can reach into my soul and move and absorb me like no other art form. However it is the British landscape and especially the moors that inspires me and has always been my muse. I do not want to depict it I want to express it; by conveying the feelings I have for it.
I endeavour to express a feeling of place with colour and marks; and create work that has the ability to be felt by the viewer and not deliberated upon. I have recently had a piece purchase by The Atkinson Gallery for The Millfield Collection of which I am particularly proud. I have also just been accepted by the Royal West of England Academy as an Artist Member
