I studied Fine Art at Reading University and Norwich. My work is inspired by natural form and its relationship with energy projected by light, movement and their dynamics as I see them. I overwork paintings to create depth or portray a certain mood. The majority of my work uses oil based paint, a few employ a multimedia approach.

All my compositions are mood dependant and, although abstracted, are still recognisable from their starting points. I want to create a sense of place or thing in which one finds new and interesting facets to look at everyday rather than a photographic image.
