Four years ago I decided to return to university and study for a BA History of Art and Screen Media at Birkbeck,
University of London. This brought about a dramatic sea change in and my approach to my work.
I have been very much inspired by both The Post Impressionists such as Van Gogh with his vibrant pulsating use of colour
and the American Expressonists with their fluidity of application of paint on canvas.
I rarely work with a brush preferring the freedom of the palette knife. I have always been attracted by the dramatic effects n the change of the seasons and in particular woods, forests and the starkness of the trees especially silver birches against a winter skyline and the sea. Amongst my work you will find coastal landscapes, carribean seascapes, the waterways of England, forests and woodlands in seasonal change.
