“I grew up in the countryside of Suffolk, England and began to capture the character of its landscapes at an early age. As I have developed as a painter and illustrator, my love for landscape and its richness has grown, and my current work reflects this.

Each painting starts with a basic sketch and plan. As it develops I allow the piece to show itself and breathe its own life. I look for opportunities to augment and enhance colour relationships, and sometimes I subtract to balance the composition.

The whole process of making art to me is like the natural growth and rhythm of the landscapes I portray – it starts with a seed and flourishes at its own pace, giving rise to a rich depth, vibrancy and texture.”
