Acrylic and Mixed Media Painting
Acrylic and mixed media painting
The Orchard Studio, Linton Rd, Hadstock

Wild places and elemental landscapes are the starting point for much of my work and I am particularly drawn to coastal scenes. I mostly find inspiration in the landscapes of East Anglia, Mediterranean visits and sailing trips. My choice of subject matter is often decided by my emotional response to the mood and colours of the scene. The meeting of land, sea and sky has a mystical quality for me. The changing light and the ebb and flow of water mean that the views are constantly altering and evolving.

Back at my studio near Cambridge and away from the distractions of the open air, I try to capture something of the original experience. In these pictures I aim to convey a sense of the mood and atmosphere of the location. The majority of my work is in acrylic on block canvases. I find the fast drying quality of acrylic suits my style as I like to work quite quickly to build up thin washes of colour and then add texture with collage or impasto areas of paint.

I have been a member of Cambridge Open Studios since 2000 and have  recently been elected to the Society of East Anglian Watercolourists (SEAW).  I have exhibited with galleries across East Anglia and held several solo and joint exhibitions.
