EXHIBITION IN HITCHIN - 2017

ARTIST STATEMENT

With a distinctive style that is both popular and unique, I paint work that is easily recognisable and has featured in galleries and exhibitions across Hertfordshire.

Taking inspiration from all around, the paintings describe experiences, places and events.  The subjects and locations are diverse, including memories of travels near and far, using details from sketches and photos.

The images are built up in layers of oil colour with brushes and a palette knife which adds a textural quality yet retains the lines of the initial drawing.

Now as a professional artist, I paint full time from my Digswell Arts studio in Letchworth Garden City.  Being an active member of the Herts Visual Arts Open Studio programme, and coordinator of the Art Park for Rhythms of the World Festival in Hitchin, brings a strong engagement with other artists and the wider community, adding energy and enthusiasm to my working life.

Thank you for your interest in this work, if you would like to keep up to date with my latest paintings and exhibitions please email to receive newsletters and/or follow on facebook/twitter.
