My practice focuses on the investigation of the light, colour, shapes and patterns in the world around me, evoking the feel or mood of the place.

There remains a strong figurative quality in my paintings, while including semi-abstract dimensions in which I enjoy using the textural qualities of my medium.

Another important part of my life as an artist is teaching. I have been running adult art classes for over fifteen years, and find this to be a creative process in its own right.
