The Artist

I am an oil painter with a love of birds and animals and the stories that they can tell. I was always taught in writing to ‘Show, not tell’ and I think that translates perfectly into art. To tell a story through one image is something I find exciting. I love the idea of bringing the outdoors into people’s homes with my paintings and I believe that a connection with nature is really important to our mental and physical wellbeing.
I particularly love oil paints as a medium because of their depth, vibrancy and the way that they allow me to build a picture through many layers, each one revealing a little more of the subject. I sometimes do not know what the final piece will look like, but let the paint work intuitively to see what it becomes. I find the process calming and meditative, especially when it comes to adding in the fine details towards the end.

I currently work from my studio in Wiltshire.
