I am a British/New Zealand painter and I aim to capture the feeling and atmosphere of a place in paint. I enjoy walking in mountains and along the British coastline, sketching outside and then later painting in my studio. I am particularly inspired by the forces of nature, of storm, wind and the effects of light on the sea. I aim to express an emotional connection with the landscape and I am drawn to the wilderness of the UK and familiar landscapes near where I grew up. I also paint landscapes from memories of distant places, especially New Zealand. I have been learning more about my New Zealand heritage after a recent visit to NZ and I am painting the landscape connected to my Maori Grandfather and his ancestors. I am also continuing to paint and appreciate the beautiful landscapes and nature closer to my home in the UK after spending so much time at home in lockdown.
Education: BA Honours Visual Studies/German, Oxford Brookes University. After giving up work in Export Sales and Publishing and as a German and Dutch speaking interpreter, I now paint full-time.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you would like to commission a painting, if you would like any further information or would like to buy any of the paintings on my website. I would be very happy to help you.
