I am a painter who works in all sorts of media and enjoys the excitement that develops as paint creates shape and form as it is applied to the whatever the surface. Having been a large abstract painter prior to moving to Devon. Here the Landscape the colour and atmosphere is both beautiful and a challenge to the Painter. The rolling hills and valleys of North Devon, the colours, textures and shapes of both Dartmoor and Exmoor have inspired my senses and lead me to represent the beauty in what I see. My work has developed more traditionally but continues to dwell on the excitement of surface and texture. The flora and fauna on land farmed organically in Devon and the effect man has had on the landscape is of particular interest to me having farmed land in North Devon throughout the last ten years.
