Artist statement:

My artwork is influenced by my love of nature and a peaceful life near woodland area and meadows. I paint because it provides an outlet for my creativity and I find art very relaxing and tranquil. Peace and tranquillity can be seen in my ongoing series of black and white countryside landscapes. Trees, dry stone walls and wooden fences feature in almost all my current work. Occasionally little mice playing or having fun feature in garden scenes. I like black and white because it lends a rustic old world quality, and my paintings fit into any environment they are displayed in.

Previous to my art career I was involved in sport for 20 years. After achieving a very successful status in sport and the years creeping past, I decided to retire to a slow-paced lifestyle. Learning and practising art would fulfil a void left within me. Time to learn, time to paint.

My artwork began as figurative pencil drawings then evolved through abstract paintings and textured interior art. For the past three years I have worked with acrylics painting nature and country scenes plucked from my imagination and surroundings. I love to paint and continue my journey.
