I live and work in West Hallam, mainly using pastels and oils with occasional dabblings in watercolour, line and wash and lino print. My subject matter is principally portraits but also encompasses figurative composition, landscape and still life. Carefully observed drawing underpins all my work.
Through my work, I aim to create something that, whilst representative, will also give aesthetic pleasure through carefully planned balance in composition, tone and colour.
I have exhibited in London, Derby, Birmingham, Chester, Sheffield, Macclesfield, Buxton, Cromford and Nottingham (including Patchings) and have received a number of awards for my work.
