I am a representational, realist 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. 

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. Rather than say I’m self taught, my learning has been undertaken through disciplined self study and virtual tuition.

My alla prima, ‘wet on wet’ oil painting technique comes from my love of colour, light, movement and texture working both from life and in the studio. Mostly I am striving to capture the mood and essence of a scene in as few brushstrokes as possible, with a limited colour palette that provides a clean harmony and calm minimalist sensibility.
