I am a representational oil painter with a loose, gestural and minimalist style based along the White Cliffs of Dover, where I grew up inspired by the seascapes of JMW Turner. 

My alla prima, ‘wet on wet’ oil painting technique comes from my love of colour, light, movement and texture working from life, from imagination and in the studio. I strive to capture fleeting, transient moments and the changing elements in nature: the sea, the sky, clouds, sunrises and florals. The challenge being to record the mood and essence of a scene in as few brushstrokes as possible, with a limited colour palette, clean harmony and calm minimalist sensibility. 

I always wanted to go to art school but instead read English literature and History of Art, then I went to law school and ended up in the corporate world of fine art insurance. It was only after the birth of my daughter a few years ago that I was inspired to come back to painting. Since then I have maintained a steady art practice mainly working in my home studio and outdoors in my local area. I am exclusively represented by Taylor Jones & Son in Deal, Kent.
