ORIGINAL ARTWORK

I strive to capture light and perspective in my paintings and I particularly love to paint trees, woodlands, the seashore and clouds

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.
