“I studied History of Art at the Courtauld institute and later went on to paint after spending some time restoring Dutch Old Master paintings and working in film. I live in a house on the top of a hill by the sea in North Wales and my paintings are a visceral response to being immersed in this environment.

“The ever-changing sky, sea, land are the source of my inspiration and I use them as a basis to set a scene for an imaginary landscape that best captures the atmosphere. I work exclusively in oils as it affords the best luminosity and light is of paramount importance in setting the scene. When not painting landscapes, it’s the space and sense of how it is occupied that obsesses me as much as the subject as I try to leave things as open as possible for the viewer to make their own interpretations.”
