My work covers a broad range of subjects, including Landscape, the Life Model and Jazz music. I use charcoal, pastels, watercolour, oils, and collage. My sketchbook is indispensible for developing my ideas.
I am passionate about capturing the vibrancy and colour of music, especially Jazz. I work from live performances; I want to make the music and colour more vivid for myself and the viewer.
The Life Model is more than just a discipline in my work. I love working from the human figure: the possibilities for expression, and the tremendous challenges it presents for the artist are endless.
During 2020 I've spent a great deal of time outdoors, and made sketches and paintings of the Hampshire landscape. Additionally I paint while staying in the Alps, and in Skye - the light and the mountains, while very different, are a great source of inspiration.
Through art I aim to create an emotional connection between the subject and the person viewing my work; to make it more vibrant and alive for myself and them.
