take my inspiration from a passion ignited by a country escape found in the
Welsh mountains by my grandparents some 30 years ago.
I was raised in the city and the country solace opened my landlocked eyes to the beauty, joy and freedom of nature.
It was this feeling of well being that drove my creativity, and I believe the reason that I am drawn to painting landscapes today.
I use a broad range of media to portray the changing landscapes I have discovered across the country. I believe that mixing these media's powerfully projects and engages the eye, inviting the viewer to experience the feeling that I had when I was a child at my grandparents Welsh country cottage.
I have produced many commissions for notable actors and musicians, my works now hang all over the world from Hong Kong, Australia, China, America, Canada and across Europe. The curator of the National Portrait Gallery purchased a landscape on canvas from northern-scapes and went to the trouble of contacting the studio to congratulate me on my work, this is one of my proudest moments.
Please feel free to contact me regarding any of the paintings seen or to discuss commissioning your own special view.
