Having lived in the town and surrounding countryside of Hay-On-Wye for 25 years, I’m the process of embarking on a new venture in Pembrokeshire. The transition from the Welsh borderland to life in the Wild West is already influencing my work in surprising ways. 

The coastal light, landscape and weather, and the view of the huge ever-changing sky from the studio window will inevitably provide inspiration for my paintings.

Work is available for sale and commissioned work undertaken. Please feel free to get in touch for more information.

You may also find some of my work at:

Workshop Wales, Manorowen, Fishguard, Pembrokeshire.

Artist statement:
I am continually exploring new ways to make paintings using layers of texture, colour and gesture. My colours are carefully chosen and tints meticulously mixed. However, spontaneity is also an important part of the process.
I am fascinated by the incedental marks and accidental splashes which happen around the edges- on the table and mixing boards for example- and aim to incorporate the character of these serendipitous events into my work.
