  • Artist’s Statement

    I’m a realist landscape painter. My work focuses on natural and man-made landscapes and often a combination of both. I don’t rush into my work but tend to contemplate a subject for some time, often days, before mixing paint. Sometimes it takes me ages to find the right subject – or at least the right way to interpret it.

  • Influences

    Structure - Industrial and Urban Landscapes
    Having been an architect for most of my working life, I am naturally attracted to the structure, form, perspective, scale and detail of buildings.
    The combination of man-made structures with natural landscape features in a lot of my work, as do “slices” and details of walls, windows, brickwork and plumbing, where they contribute to a dynamic and memorable image. The way glass reflects the light, the sky and other objects, makes it a compelling material
