I work in wide range of media and at different scales, often incorporating various forms of texture to enhance the visual experience. I am known for my distinctive use of colour with a recognisable style, despite the range of subjects I depict. I am striving to make my work more abstract, but aim to ensure that it is meaningful and that the viewer can relate the picture to its title.

Much of my representational work is in response to visits to Venice and is often based on evocative paintings of that magical place at night.

My detailed knowledge of Dorset, and in particular the Isle of Purbeck acquired over many years, has enabled me to represent its landscape, coastline and the human impact on both.

I have been inspired by apparently disparate artists such as JMW Turner, Ben Nicholson, Howard Hodgkin and Nicholas de Stael. Artistic teaching under the umbrella of the former Bournemouth Arts Institute plus the guidance of the Dorset artists Dr Brian Graham, Peter Joyce and Robert Woolner have all helped me greatly to develop my own artistic ability and style.
