Living and working in Norfolk some of my landscapes embrace the diverse colours and shapes of the coastline, the ever-changing moods of the vast East Anglian skies and the wild beauty of the natural and cultivated countryside. I also spend time in Devon where the light on the sea is of a different hue and many of my reflection paintings have been inspired by the coast there. I also like to employ the geometry of intersecting lines such as telegraph wires, ropes, masts etc in my work to give a composition depth or a more abstract quality and to observe elements which provide a more challenging view of the literal world such as the shapes and patterns created by shadows and reflections. Often overlooked, these transient and intangible phenomena can, through distortion and the use of different light sources, offer virtually abstract images. (reference Shadow pattern paintings and Reflections series). In contrast to the calm and tranquillity of the sea and landscapes are my bright and vigorous paintings of East Anglian folk dancers in which the action and exuberance of the dancers are caught in a moment of time. I have exhibited and sold paintings at the Mall Gallery in London, in solo shows and galleries throughout Norfolk and am a member of the West Norfolk Artists Association, Devon Artist Network and the SAA.
