"Excelsior"
Oil painting
Little Ouse, Cambridgeshire

I am an oil painter living in the Fens where I draw inspiration from my surroundings whether that is people, landscape, city or general life around me here and on my travels.  I use brush, palette knife and many other tools and everyday objects to make my art.  This year I have been working with oil paint and cold wax medium, building up layers and textures, creating depth and history in my paintings.  I am exploring the relationship between the complexity and simplicity so often simultaneously present in nature, and indeed in life.  Our life experience is also multi-layered and complex, which in turn informs our response to our surroundings.

I am increasingly interested in painting the human face, a never ending challenge of light, planes, contours, of capturing mood and character.

I shall be exhibiting with Riverside Arts as part of Cambridge Open Studios 2019.
