My drive to create work is an emotional response to colour, my love of form and to the effects on both of light & atmosphere.

Homepage image - "Here comes summer" was selected for the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2022. I am absolutely delighted to have been successful last year, how the time has flown. Delighted also that it sold even before the exhibition opened to the public. In addition the limited edition print run that accompanied the painting has now also sold out, marking the end of something I suppose - my most successful painting to date!
