Exploring the outdoors, getting away from it all, is good for us..... BUT - there is never enough time. So - my mission is to capture in paintings some of the feelings, the uplift, I enjoy from my wanderings.
This site contains a few samples of my work, I hope you enjoy browsing. Some paintings are For Sale - Enquiries welcome with no commitment. email [email protected]
If I am to succeed in capturing my own exhiliration from the landscape, I must spend time out there - but - unlike the French Riviera, our climate changes from day to day. The sun will probably not be there again tomorrow, so I have to work quickly.
I began painting seriously in 2013. Before that all of my creative energy - and time - was taken up with the greasy pole of career. My training was in Edinburgh where I was fortunate to go to a school where the art staff were committed to traditional teaching.
Eventually I was able to commit time to painting and have developed my expressive outdoor style.
My work has been shown in:
Waterloo Gardens exhibition space, Roath, Cardiff
The Gate, Roath, Cardiff
Pierhead Building, Cardiff Bay
Crickhowell Open Studios
Welsh Government Senedd building (see left)
My work has sold to clients in South Africa, Florida, California, Germany and across South Wales of course.
