I was trained in Art & Education at Trent Park College, London, specialising in Perspex sculpture from 1967-1971. I lived in the Tamar Valley in Devon for 28 years, where I was a member of the 'Drawn to the Valley' group of artists and a 'Feature Artist' for Pentel who produce Pentel oil pastels. Being designated as an area outstanding natural beauty, the Tamar Valley was an inspiration for many of my landscapes. In 2014 I moved to Norfolk, where big skies and expansive seascapes prevail. I am currently working in the mediums of oil pastels and oil paints. My preferred oil pastels are Caran d"Ache Neopastels although I sometimes combine them with Sennelier.
My fascination has always been with light and shadow, whether working with direct light in my Perspex sculptures or in my paintings and oil pastels. I try to capture the drama and mood that light creates in a landscape.
