I am a contemporary artist based in Newhaven, East Sussex.
My paintings are free and expressive, bursting with colour and movement.
Sketching ‘en plain air’ my work is influenced by the light and energy of the ever changing environment. Working with a fresh contemporary palette, my paintings are an extension of my sketch book and become a dance of mark making and a call and response process. Each mark or colour bouncing off previous lines, strokes and textures. My paintings develop with different shapes, scales, line quality, spacing, tones, and colour, capturing the fluidity and movement of the sea near my home, but also its harmony with the connecting grasslands and countryside.
My background is in print and illustration for fashion and publishing. If you are interested in that side of my work, please click HERE
