ABOUT

I am a mixed media artist based in Swansea, west Wales, with a love of wild, out of the way places.

Predominantly a landscape painter, my work expresses thoughts and feelings inspired by my own experience of a place and the images it generates in my imagination.

I am particularly drawn to the patterns created on the land by fleeting changes of light. For me, these transient effects bring to mind the history, folklore and culture of the area and I will often include references to this in my images.

Using both figurative and abstract elements, I allow my paintings to evolve organically, one idea sparking the next. In my most recent work, I have used collage to further blur the boundaries between the real and the imagined.

I see my paintings as a collaboration with the viewer, inviting their own interpretation of the piece and thus completing it in a way that is personal to them.
