I would describe my paintings as ‘impressionistic.’  My enduring fascination is with fleeting moments in time – such as a racing shadow over a mountain range.  As well as landscapes, I am currently working on a number portraits of Naseby residents, with the intention of capturing something of the personality, as well as the likeness, of the sitter.

I work mainly in oils, water colour and pastel - but also use any other medium that I feel helps to capture the land or its people.
