My paintings, inspired by natural beauty, are creations in oil with the paint applied in a variety of ways dependent on the mood. Most are spontaneous and the paint is quickly applied using knives, brushes, sponges, fingers, anything really. Others are more thoughtful, using geometric figures and borrowing from stain glass window design. Frequently both kinds of paintings are produced concurrently, the freedom of one enabling the more conscious, studied approach of the second.

Whether it is the patterns, details and colours of a bird’s plumage or the much wider view of the changes of season in the local landscape the aim is to create beautiful, attractive and occasionally unusual paintings to portray and draw attention to what I see every day.

Open; 10.30 to 4.30pm Sat 23rd – Sun 24th May and Sat 30th – Sun 31st May.
