I strive to capture light and perspective in my paintings and I particularly love to paint trees and woodlands

with a sense of drawing the viewer into the scene.  I enjoy building layers into my paintings by adding the more delicate detail

over the initial colour work to create depth and intimacy.

If you have an idea that I can translate into original artwork for you, please contact me. 


With inspiration drawn from the wild flowers and grasses along the edge of the shingle beach at Abbotsbury in Dorset, I wanted to catch a moment when the breeze gently scatters the seeds.

Autumn Glow.jpg


This painting is straight from my imagination.  I wanted to create a feeling of breathing in crisp, fresh air as the bright morning light draws you forward along a broad path through an autumn woodland. Who knows what lies beyond?  I'll leave that to your imagination!

Catching Sunlight on the Ferns.jpg

"Catching Sunlight on Ferns"

This woodland scene captures a late summer, early autumn light through trees that are thinking about shedding their leaves.  The dense canopy of summer is thinning and the sunlight is tracing delicate fingers of light through to just catch the tops of the ferns.
