Based in the heart of the North Yorkshire countryside, I paint using acrylics, oil and ink, creating original paintings detailing the form and movement of equestrian themes, local wildlife and farm animals.
My interest is in painting wildlife and animals that have a job, and their partnership with their owner. Wildlife, working and competition animals are fit, and consequently their form is defined by their muscles and athleticism. I am fascinated by the bond between people and their animals which is as essentially timeless as the countryside itself.
I am inspired by the country sport artists of an earlier age, whilst being very much part of the present. My paintings have a natural peaceful presence in the rendering of colour juxtaposed with the vitality and dynamism of the subjects.
I also undertake commissions and bespoke projects. Please feel free to contact me to discuss your ideas.
