I live and breath image making... taking inspiration from Nature. I am passionate about conserving the natural landscape to inspire future generations.
As a visual artist, I work with a variety of creative mediums, including, digital painting & illustration, location and studio photography, traditional watercolour & gouache painting, and pencil & ink drawing. I often combine elements from several of these disciplines, as the finished image dictates. I have never been a purist. The end result is what matters to me. My more illustrative work is strongly influenced by the traditions of impressionism & pointillism (Claude Monet, George Seurat & Gustav Klimt).
Based in beautiful Nidderdale, North Yorkshire, I derive much of my creativity from my local surroundings. Many of my paintings and photographs are inspired by my local landscape & artists - such as the poet Ted Hughes - whose inspired portrayals of this rugged Northern landscape accurately capture the essence of the natural world I have come to know and love.
My landscape photographs try to convey the silence and wonder I sense in the countryside throughout the seasons. I am particularly fond of the Winter months and love to capture the transformative natural beauty of snow, frost and ice.
My paintings explore the spirituality and essence of nature itself. My woodlands and forests are brimming with secrets, shaped by the seasons and weathered by the elements. My nightscapes are windows into the soul of mankind... full of faith, optimism, and a life-long yearning for knowledge. Star and moonlit skies filled with magic and wonder.
