The main source of inspiration for my work is drawn from the natural environment capturing the ever changing British climate and its effect on the landscape. Working from my riverside studio in the heart of the beautiful Tanat Valley, wildlife and natural landscape subjects are immediately at hand to be depicted in my paintings. The subject will dictate its treatment and the media to be used. Acrylic, Watercolour and Pastel are my preferred mediums. A combination of on-location sketches and photographic reference provide a starting point for the work to be completed in the studio. My latest venture is into the world of digital image making, enabling me not only to produce original paintings but also prints of my more popular images. My work attempts much more than objective representation. It is very much a personal interpretation and is intended to delight the eye and lift the spirit.
