I am a professional landscape painter and I work in watercolour and acrylic. Many of my subjects are sought amongst the moors and hills of my native West Yorkshire and beyond.
My work reflects the rugged scenery of the landscape, either in the context of wild places or in the nature of the South Pennine landscape where I live. Here, I draw my inspiration from the remains of the pre-industrial era where crumbling enclosure walls and ancient pastures still survive. It is this or the open mountain and moorland terrain that inspires me to explore the spirit of historical connections using layers of colour, texture, shapes and patterns applied with energy and feeling.
