Oil paintings informed by wild landscapes and ecosystems. I am passionate about preservation of unique habitats and the inherent beauty and diversity of wilderness. Motivated by colour and relationships that occur when layering pigments, I express atmosphere in nature, and create aesthetic and emotional impressions. 

What to expect:

My process uses elements of photography, writing, sketches and poetry to document creatively, aid memory and imagination and as reference material. Visitors can see these, alongside paintings at different stages, using specialist environmentally and health-conscious modern mediums and oil colours, plus tools and materials.
