Hello, I am a contemporary artist based in beautiful Thirsk, North Yorkshire. I work from my home studio and with both the Moors and the Dales on my doorstep, I’m surrounded by inspiration for my paintings.
Painting places where I enjoy spending time is a constant source of pleasure for me and helps me to still spend time in a place even when I’m not physically there. The connection with North Yorkshire is probably obvious, this is where I live and is a landscape I adore. I also spend a lot of time in the Lake District, you can feel so free in it’s big and dramatic landscapes. I have family in Cornwall and Devon and these beautiful landscapes occasionally pop up in my work too.
I create original oil paintings on stretched canvas with both brush and palette knife in a predominantly semi abstract style. I am predominantly a landscape artist but I do enjoy painting still life images as well.
